Interactive Read Aloud
Kelly Austin
Kelly Austin - Bauder Elementary
Kelly Austin & Karin Lewis have been instrumental in teaching others in Pinellas County Schools to use Interactive Read Alouds.

This is a widely used, highly effective practice to develop emerging literacy skills.
It consists of an adult reading a story, book or picture book to an individual child, a small groups or a whole class. The listener is encouraged to listen carefully and to ask questions.
Karin Lewis
Karin Lewis - Bauder Elementary
Karin Lewis and Kelly Austin teach 2nd Grade at Bauder Elementary School. They have helped develop a "post-it-note" template so that teachers can share interactive read alouds notes effectively.
Post-it-Note Template
Place post-it- notes over a printed template, then run it through the printer.
Here are the codes:

TnT Turn and Talk
TA - Think aloud
S&J - Stop and Jot
S&A - Stop and Act out

The website format provided by Pinellas County does not give me the flexibility to reorganize this list alphabetically... or for you to do a search. I've included pictures to help you find the resource you need.
