This Smart Notebook file is meant to be used to compliment the Ready Gen Reading and Writing Program for Kindergarten. These lessons are from Unit 2: Module A. There is a vocabulary slide at the start of the download. I use this before every lesson and review the words with my students. The words in bold are words that can be acted out to include movement breaks. There are suggested discussion questions and a "Random Word Selector" to choose students at random. The children love seeing the Smartboard pick them to answer a question. It also helps students recognize their names and the names of their classmates. It is a nice way to keep every student involved and refrain from choosing the same students to answer questions. I also use this to give students that may have processing difficulties take an extra minute or two to think about the question and not feel pressured when other hands are waving in the air instantly.
It is not included in this file because I did not create it but there is an excellent Seasons video on YouTube by Pancake Manor. The children love it and it is conducive to this unit.
Most clip art is from mycutegraphics.com and SmartNotebook Software. There is a cartoon Olaf that I found via Google search. I do not own the rights or did not create this image myself. It is simply just a motivation tool for my personal classroom. My children love it!
