I created and used all of these lessons with my kindergarten class in McKinney, Texas. They are tried and true. These lessons are basic and can be scaled up or down as needed by your class. They are written in the 5E model and encompass the Texas standards or the TEKS.
The 5E model:
E1 Engage the students
E2 Explore (read aloud)
E3 Explain (teach mini lesson/ discussion)
E4 Elaborate (application/ demonstration)
These lessons were written to be used in a reading and writing workshop model. They could also be used in centers. We often gave the DRA or developmental reading assessment as our evaluation in reading and developed writing samples as checkpoints in student writing.
The lessons come in bundles by quarters (4). There is a reading and writing lesson plan for each day. (some continue on for many days).
I have also provided an overview of each week and some units are thematic.
If you have any questions about any of this work you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not distribute or sell these resources. They are for classroom use only. Have fun! I think your class will love these lessons.
