One and Only Ivan and/or The Wild Robot
Thinking of doing these 2 books as a read aloud, but I would like some activities to do with them. Have you used and TPT novel units with comprehension questions and vocabulary activities? I don't need a million things, but would like something I don't have to make myself. Suggestions?

I read both.

When I read Ivan, I also read the shorter picture book and do some of the activities from this packet:

I also watch some videos about Ivan on YouTube.

The Book Umbrella ( ) has book companions for both books.

I read The Wild Robot last year and my class loved it! I have also used The Book Umbrella for novel studies. So I have nothing of value to add...just a thumbs up to choppie! :)

The One and Only Ivan
I did the One and Only Ivan as a read aloud in my 3/4 class. I highly recommend you use the audio book as it has a great voice for the silverback. Honestly, I found it very "powerful" using the audiobook as the voice really gets the students to imagine the story. You can find the audiobook on YouTube.

Thanks for the info. I will look at those TPT suggestions.

I looked for an audio book on youtube, but there were many. Do you know who read the one you used, TeachingSarah?
