This is a complete month of original Common Core aligned phonological awareness curriculum. If you follow our curriculum in your classroom, which requires 15 minutes a day on the first day and 10 minutes a day for the next four days, you will see amazingly ridiculous phonological awareness growth in your students. This program is tried and true, used in K and first grade classrooms at my school. This curriculum is based on 16 phonological awareness skills that we have identified in the Common Core for ELA. The activities/lessons are text-based, meaning the words and phrases for the phonological awareness lessons (which we call "listening games") are based on popular read aloud titles (books not included) from your monthly curricular themes. This program was written around the Kindergarten and First Grade Common Core standards and skills including the Common Core document, Appendix A, based on phonological awareness research and the general progression of phonological awareness skills in the foundational reading process. This curriculum is also appropriate for Pre-K and anyone working in a teaching capacity with K or 1st grade students. We are so sure you are going to love our phonological awareness curriculum after using it for just one week, that we think you'll come back to purchase the monthly bundles.
The May bundle includes four weeks of lessons based on the following holiday and curricular theme related read-aloud titles:
Amelia’s Road (May 5 – Cinco de Mayo, celebrating Hispanic Heritage)
Koala Lou (May 12 – Mother’s Day)
The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Insect Life Cycles)
Thunder Cake (Summer Storms)
The only PREP required to implement this curriculum is you locating the book. Once you download and print the lessons included here (28 pages) there is NO MORE PREP. You're ready. In fact, you actually don't have to print them at all if you have an iPad, you can teach straight off your iPad if you open the lessons in iBooks.
