We have recently been given the Mini Lessons book and the Interactive Read-Aloud and we are trying to lay out a plan for next year. We have noticed that on some of the mini lessons it asks to refer back to 2 or 3 books, which are from different text sets. It does not seem practical to read aloud 2-3 books before one mini-lesson in one day. Is there a cohesive plan for the two programs to work together? We have the suggested pacing guides for both, but the books needed for the mini-lessons are in different text sets.

Those are suggestions that if you have read those texts in other lessons to refer to them. You may use any texts that you have read for making the connection or whatever the suggestion is. When doing a minilesson you don't read the entire text of those read before but just a part that provides an example of the minilesson objective. You often will read parts of a few texts to provide a variety of examples for the minilesson. The professional development videos may provide helpful hints about using the lessons in more integrated ways. Check out the following links to help you get started.
