Using the new Tennessee Kindergarten standards, this pacing guide places standards into a week by week plan. Science and Social studies standards are placed for maximum ability to integrate with literacy. There are also suggestions for topic and related texts to help teachers meet the standards.
Phonics and Phonemic Awareness skills follow the scope and sequence for Journeys, but the skills could be taught using any program. The writing workshop lessons are based on Writing Through the Year by Deanna Jump, but could be used with any writer's workshop model.
This unit plan only covers the first semester of teaching.
