What is KinderLiteracy

KinderLiteracy units are based upon the close read model. Each week you will focus on one text and each day look closely at that text. KinderLiteracy is a 50 week literacy curriculum It will be suggested that you bring in another text for comparison each week as well. The units have been completely planned out for you, but with the ability for you to have them meet your individual needs.

KinderLiteracy is a simple print and teach literacy curriculum. No more tracking down ideas, books, printables, and writing! I have it covered!
