What educators are saying

This is a great unit for January/February! The children love the stories and I like the many activities to choose from!
I loved all of the books included in this unit. My students enjoyed the books and diving deeper into the text and learning new vocabulary words.

KinderLiteracy Unit Four: Listen and Learn (6 weeks of instruction):

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 35 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!


What is included in KinderLiteracy?

  • Teacher "simple read" lesson plans. You will not need to rewrite these lesson plans, unless you choose do. If so I have included editable lesson plans.
  • Each week I have planned out the; big idea, focus standard, essential questions, comprehension focus, story element focus, writing genre, phonemic awareness piece, vocabulary, and so much more!

Themes Included in Unit Four:

  • The Snowy Day by Jack Ezra Keats
  • Penguins by Anne Schreiber
  • Ron’s Big Mission by Corrine Naden
  • Polar Bears by Laura Marsh
  • Bad Case of Stripes by Davis Shannon
  • Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson

*Note- You will need to provide your own texts for these units. The texts are the only thing that you'll need to add in each week.
