Get a jump on meeting important Common Core learning standards with the core aligned lessons and activities in this fun "Back to School" pack! This 30 pg. Pack includes:
Two awesome back to school read aloud lesson plans with pre-reading and post-reading discussions and response activities.
(The Kissing Hand and A teacher for Bear)
Printable *Mini Book, "School" , also great for print concepts. Children cut apart the pages and read together/independently. They illustrate the last page to tell what they like to play at school.
*Poem “School” I have included two versions. I use the short and sweet version since it matches the skill level I am focusing on. It includes a longer version as well. Longer version is just right for beginning 1st graders. All activities work with both!
Note to Teacher: Write the name of your school on the school in the illustration and add any exterior features (like a clock) to make it look more like your school. Discussion Questions are aligned to Common Core Standards including talking about Print Concepts
Suggestion for Personal Response to Literature (Draw/Write)
*Literacy Center: Counting Syllables
This center is included in full color for laminating. (Or slip into sheet protector.) It is also included in blackline for independent project or easy printing. The Picture/Word Cards that are used with the syllable sort can also be used as a word List for your writing center and/or a "Memory" style matching game (Print 2)
*7 pages for counting and writing numbers to 5. Each page also includes a "draw one more" and write the number that tell haw many activity.
