I hope you enjoy this resource! Please note:

This is not a Rooted in Reading resource. While it shares some of the fundamental principals that are true to Rooted in Reading, this is a new product.

Rock the Read-Aloud focuses on one read-aloud with activities for comprehension, journal writing, grammar, vocabulary, science integration, and math. It is NOT a week of lesson plans, but it does have lesson plans included for everything!

This would be great to pull out as a supplement to your curriculum, for a fun Friday, to break the routine, or to leave for a sub!
