Informational Texts- Guided Reading Texts and Activities for Kindergarteners
This packet is designed to make your guided reading time a breeze. Everything you need to help your kindergarteners become better readers is included. Through using this packet, students will be able to locate informational text features, respond to informational texts, practice connecting to prior knowledge, retell the sequence of events, and locate the main idea and details in a text. I've even included cards and pictures so that you can create anchor charts for your students.
This pack includes 4 nonfiction topics:
-"In The Garden"
I have included many science extensions/recording pages that focus on life cycles as well.
Each topic includes three leveled texts to make differentiation simple. I have also written out step by step lesson plans for you to follow. Each day consists of a brain warm up, reading the text (while working on specific reading strategies), and an extension/assessment.
Each week students will practice different language and phonics skills as well as new sight words. Flashcards and games are included that go along with the weekly objectives and topics. These games are perfect for literacy centers as well!
Writing extensions and crafts are also provided.
