This fantastic kindergarten unit contains a variety of Common Core reading, writing and math activities. It’s just perfect for Kinders in September! The common core standards are listed at the top of the page. Students will enjoy the focus on apples, as they count, play games, and make an apple headband. There are two poems related to apples and leaves, with close read follow-ups. Students will learn to write in a journal by copying sentences, and then advance to independent writing with a journal template. There are also letter and number activities that focus on beginning Kinder concepts. Starting sound worksheets, rhyming word activities and roll and read fluency games provide more practice on target skills.
