Guided Reading in the beginning of the year looks a little different in a kindergarten classroom. In order to help your kindergarteners become strong readers, students need to work on their phonemic awareness. This pack includes EVERYTHING you need to have successful guided reading lessons at the beginning of the year with your students.
This packet includes:
-Phonemic Awareness Games
-Guided Reading Books (leveled readers A-D)
-Worksheets for Independent Practice
The games included in this packet include games that focus on letter naming fluency, first sound fluency, rhyming, phonemic segmentation, and more!
In the beginning of the year, my guided reading groups are a bit different than they are after the first 6-9 weeks. During this time, I play many phonemic awareness games and work on 3 main skills: LNF (letter naming fluency), FSF (first sound fluency), and PSF (phoneme segmentation fluency).
Some of the games included are:
What’s Missing? (print and go!)
Dry Erase Games (print and go!)
Write and Wipe
Nomenclature Cards and Writing
Match the Picture to the Letter
Magnetic Match Up
Put the Alphabet In Order
Each lesson plan for the first six weeks is written out for you. After the first six weeks, I format my guided reading groups to consist of three different things:
1 A brain warm up (a game)
2 Reading a text of some sort
3 An extension/assessment
This packet includes everything you need for those lessons as well! In this packet, you will receive leveled emergent readers for your students reading between an A-D level. These books are designed to help your students master reading with confidence and fluency.
These books are PERECT for students who are just learning how to read. With fun illustrations and easy-to-read stories, your students will become fluent readers in no time. This will help build confidence in your young readers while teaching them important foundational phonics and phonemic skills.
Please look at the preview to get a closer look at how this packet works and what is included in it. You will not be disappointed in this packet!
The books included in this pack are geared for students reading between an A-D level.
