This week’s lesson in Reading Street Kindergarten for Unit 1 Week 3 features the story titled Plaidypus Lost by Janet Stevens.I have created activities that support the CCSS for kindergarten as shown in this week’s reading series. Use these activities in literacy centers with adult guidance or make black and white copies for parents to work on at home with their child for additional skill practice.
