>>> FYI #1: This resource was created to be used in an Ontario Kindergarten classroom. Because of this, there is CANADIAN SPELLING throughout the resource and the holidays correspond with CANADIAN HOLIDAYS. <<<

>>> FYI #2: This product is week 1 of December. If you would like all 3 weeks of December bundled for 20% off, you can grab the Kinder Read Alouds: December pack instead by clicking here.

September to April have been bundled into a year long bundle. You can find that by clicking here.

I have seperated them in weeks for you in case you don't need all of the lessons. <<<

I created this resource because I wanted to compile my favourite read alouds and corresponding discussion questions/follow up activities that hit the reading comprehension expectations in the Ontario Kindergarten Program so that it would make planning for each week easier.

I have provided 5 days worth of read aloud lessons for each week. However, I usually only use half of these lessons, as the whole group time I use to teach these lessons I also use to teach writing and inquiry. I provided, what I hope is, more than you need for each week, so that you can pick and choose the lessons and books you like best! I also like to keep my carpet time short so sometimes I will do half the lesson on one day and the other half on the following day.

They do not have to be taught in order, however, I did try to create them so the skills get more complex through the weeks/months. There is also lots of spiraling so students get ample opportunity to practice the various reading comprehension skills.

I hope you enjoy these read aloud plans and that it saves you planning time!

Please ask any questions you have prior to purchasing!

Thank you,
