This new series of Kinder Reads will focus on popular books and that are incorporated in most Kindergarten classrooms today. Most teachers own these books already! This mini unit is different than others because it includes everything you need in one place. This is loosely based on the 5 Finger Retell and will cover the story elements of characters, setting, events, problem, and solution. This includes:
Anchor Charts- multiple charts to use throughout the week. There are fun vibrant labels that are easy to cut and add to your chart. These include labels for characters, setting, BME retelling, problem and solution as well as retell cards.
Craftivity- This is a cute scarecrow craft that can be printed on colored construction paper or on white paper and the students will color it themselves. There is a writing worksheet that can be added to this for a writing/craft template.
Retell cards- There is a whole group set of these to use during carpet time as well as a black and white version for the students to color, cut, and paste in order at their desk. Great for independent practice. These fit perfectly on a LARGE piece of construction paper or a regular piece that is cut in half and stapled together.
Worksheets- There are worksheets for each day that go along with the lesson and a recommendation on how to use them but they can be used anyway you want.
Exit Tickets- This has 4 days of exit tickets and your 5th day can be used for reviewing exit tickets and reteaching any concept that may be lacking.
5 Day Lesson Plans- This is just a recommendation of how all these pieces fit together neatly in a lesson plan but they can be used in any way that you see fit.
