What is KinderTales and Beyond?

Thanks so much for viewing my new packet, KinderTales and Beyond! One word to the wise right away is that this packet is not JUST for kindergarten student. This packet would be great for those that teach nursery rhymes and fables, especially that of Pre-K. KinderTales and Beyond is a 4 week program. First, the students will partake in two weeks of instruction in nursery rhymes. The students will be introduced to ten nursery rhymes or one per day. You can also choose to spend more than one day on that nursery rhyme. That would allow the units to expand even further. The next two weeks are for covering fables. The students will learn two new fables each wee or a total of four fables. During the daily instruction the students will be asked to analyze the stories, answer questions about: characters, setting, theme, moral, and sequence of events.

What is included?

The units include crafts, vocabulary cards, retell cards, student blacklines, and more! Each week you will have all necessary material included. The only material you might want to grab would be these two texts: Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose by Scott Gustafson and The Classic Treasury of Aesop's Fables by Don Daily. However, if you have the nursery rhymes or fables in an alternate format then no other items are needed.

What nursery rhymes are covered?

Jack and Jill

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Hey Diddle Diddle

Little Bo Peep

Hickory Dickory

Little Miss Muffet

Baa, Baa Black Sheep

Humpty Dumpty

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Jack Be Nimble

What fables are covered?

The Lion and the Mouse

The Dog and His Reflection

Can I see more?

Yes! Be sure to view the HUGE preview! You will be able to see a snippet of the lesson plans and materials included! Please note that there is a LOT more included!

Is this part of any other bundle and do I need this?

This packet is not part of any other bundle (KinderLiteracy). I made that decision as KinderLiteracy is already well beyond the 35 weeks that were promised. I would also like to keep this packet seperate for the Pre-K teachers that have asked for something on their end! Do you need this packet? That is of course your decision! I feel this packet is perfect to split it up these two ways: two weeks of nursery rhymes at the beginning of the school year and two weeks of fables anytime you see fit! I know that Texas teachers are asked to teach fables which is why I orginally made this packet!
