What Is Your Dream?
The birthday of Dr. King is an important holiday for young learners to be aware of. Once you have read a variety of books this reader is the perfect extension for this topic that will make the work of this leader more comprehensible to young learners.
There are two readers that have been provided in this packet. One is an emergent reader for your students and the other is the teacher's version which is larger and in color. Both of these have dots under the text so students can track the words with ease. These are ideal for primary learners so that you can set academic goals with them them as you begin the new year. These readers reflect the new Common Core standards, providing rich academic vocabulary and an opportunity to build comprehension. The repetitive text will build the confidence of your students, regardless of their reading level and the content can be linked back to the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr.
These readers can be sent home as part of your literacy program for students to share.
Fran Kramer came to my class and did a demo lesson using this book! It was an awesome experience for my students. I love the way this book connects the "dream" theme to the Kinder student's life! Love you Fran!

I love the message and the connection to common core goals for kindergarten. I assumed, wrongly, that there was 2 different books...not the same version in different formats. Still lovely book and can't wait to use it with my class this week.
