Core Vocabulary Read Aloud Favorites

Here are some of my favorite Read Alouds to work on core vocabulary words with my class. A lot of the books are short and easy to read and the kids LOVE them! Many of the books have multiple core vocabulary words that you can introduce, but I would just focus on one or two so it is not so overwhelming for your class. 


Mo Willems Books- Many of the books have multiple core vocabulary words. Choose one or two depending on your class that you want to introduce.
