This MEGA Pack includes two awesome back to school read alouds with lesson plans and LOTS of response activities, poetry with discussions, more responses and conversations about print concepts, a mini book to make and two versions of a syllabication center, one in full color. Everything is Common Core aligned!
Poem “School” I have included two versions. I use the short and sweet version since it matches the skill level I am focusing on. It includes a longer version as well. Longer version is just right for beginning 1st graders. All activities work with both!
Note to Teacher: Write the name of your school on the school in the illustration and add any exterior features (like a clock) to make it look more like your school.
Discussion Questions are aligned to Common Core Standards including talking about Print Concepts
Suggestion for Personal Response to Literature (Draw/Write)
Phonemic Awareness Extensions
Literacy Center: Sorting by Syllable
Center is included in full color for laminating. (Or slip into sheet protector.) Also included in blackline for independent project.
Word Cards that are used with Sylllable Sort and can also be used for

Mini Book, "School" , also great for print concepts. Children cut apart the pages and read together/independently. They illustrate the last page to tell what they like to play at school. (Presented as item for meeting Range of Reading and Print Concepts standards.)
