I have included color and black/white versions of all pages. There are also instruction slides included so you can put these on the projector for your students.
These projects can be used with any read-aloud or the pizza-themed ones I have suggested in the resource.

How to Use:
Choose a book to read aloud to the students. The book can be on any topic (fiction or non-fiction.) After you have read the book to the students, put the students into groups. Give each group a skill they will complete for the skills-based read-aloud project.
The students will be given a menu and a pizza for their box. The students will complete their skill (pizza box) based on the read-aloud.
The students will take turns sharing out to the class so that all students hear about each project.
This is a great review for all skills since the students will reteach the class about each skill using their menu and teach each student about the skill (referencing the read-aloud) using the pizza.
The students will finish by completing a reflection on what they learned.
The activity can be repeated with a different book and different skills going to different groups.
NOTE: This can be broken into two days if needed.
