Informational Texts- Guided Reading Texts and Activities for Kindergarteners
This packet is a designed to make your guided reading time during October and November a breeze. It includes five topics (15 books) and three differentiated lesson plans for each topic.
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, practice comparing and contrasting, and work on classifying and sorting information. I've even included cards and pictures so that you can create anchor charts for your students.
This pack includes 5 nonfiction topics:
-Types of Homes
Each topic includes three leveled texts AND lesson plans to make differentiation simple. The texts follow repeating patterns. The approaching level texts are written at an AA/A level. The on level readers are written at an A/B level. The texts for high flying students are written at a C/D level. 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. All of the texts are leveled and have specific lesson plans, games, and activities.
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 recording pages are provided.
