Valentine's Day Read Aloud Activities for Love, Z

The week of Valentine's Day is one of the craziest weeks of the year!  Everyone is so excited for the upcoming holiday and classroom parties.  I love incorporating the holiday into my whole group interactive read aloud plans for the week.  I also like to change it up every so often, so this year I made plans to go along with the book, Love, Z by Jessie Sima.  Last year for our party, we made Love Robot Bags for our Valentines, so I thought this story would pair perfectly with the robot theme!  It's about a young robot who is on an adventure to find out what love is.  It's a very sweet story!

I went ahead and made five days of lessons plans for the interactive read aloud that include a scripted mini-lesson, text-dependent questions, a daily task, and an exit ticket for each day.  At this point in the year, my students need to work on answering questions about a text using text evidence, so that's what I chose to focus on.  They become ROBOT READERS and use the evidence to COMPUTE the answer!  I am all about incorporating a theme into everything!  Ha!

Part of being able to accurately answer questions is being able to answer inferential questions.  We spend one day on how to do just that.  The little Robot Readers will do an INFERENCE INPUT reader's response task to practice.

Students will also create this cute robot craft which is perfect bulletin board decor for the month, too!  The characters in the story describe what love is to them.  Students will make a connection to the text by writing about what love is to them.

Finally, students will practice doing a Robotic Retell or Robotic Recount of the story, depending on which grade level you teach.  Second grade standards call it a recount.

I also made the daily tasks into digital tasks loaded into Google Slides (TM) in case you are virtual or hybrid right now.  I tried to make them as cute as possible for your students at home to get them in the Valentine spirit!

Below are the bags I was telling you about that we made last year!  They were so cute for collecting Valentines!  We made them right before our party.  There's also a great directed drawing HERE that you could do at your party that we did last year!
