***PLEASE NOTE: This is a GROWING bundle. I will be adding monthly units as I complete them. While there is no exact timeline, I will be releasing each unit at least a month in advance so that you have sufficient time to prepare it for your class (e.g., The December companions will be released by November 1st at the latest). The price will increase by $4 each time a month is added, resulting in a final price of $168. Purchasing the bundle early will allow you to save the most money.***
Our K-2 Special Day class students approached me and asked if I could make something that would help her teach comprehension skills, core academics, AND cover several 15-20 minute stations every day for a whole week for the entire school year. This is how this project was born.
Included are 52 book companions for book titles that are age-appropriate for students in preschool and up. While each companion is slightly different in the types of worksheets included, they follow the same structure and target the same academic standards. Each companion is about 50 pages and contains the following:
• Book Info Visuals (Author, Illustrator, Title, Setting, Characters)
• Comprehension Visuals for WH-Questions
• Multiple choice comprehension visuals for the story
• 2 levels of assessments ( (1) Multiple choice with pictures and (2) open ended questions)
• 6 step sequencing cards & cut and paste template
• English Language Arts Worksheets / Printables
o May include: Sight words, phonics, vocabulary, writing, tracing, letter writing, sentence writing with a sentence frame
• Math Worksheets / Printables
o May include: Counting practice #1-10, number writing practice #1-20, number sense, number tracing, patterning, number puzzles, problem solving
• Game to work on social skills and turn taking
• STEM activity related to the story
• Visual instructions to complete a craft related to the story
Each pack is designed to keep your students occupied for at least several daily 20 minute stations / centers per week, depending on the level of your group.
With the exception of the game, craft, and STEM components, these are pretty much NO PREP!
Please check out the preview for an overview. The preview is for the book "Peanut Butter and Jellyfish", which is part of the July packet. This was the unit we used in our SDC class to pilot the project.
I am including companions for the entire calendar year (12 months), to provide a larger level of variety, which will allow you to pick and choose your favorites.
This product would be great for upper preschool, transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, ASD classrooms, or SDC Centers / Stations in either general or special day class settings.
Many of the book titles are well-known” and many titles are available through Scholastic. Some books aren’t as well known, but they are some of my own favorites and worth adding to your classroom library. If you want to know whether a certain book will be included, feel free to shoot me a message :)
