What educators are saying

Very useful for the first week of learning. I used during a module flex day and the word wall cards along with the close read aloud were amazing! Thank you!
My kiddos loved this! It follows Tara's kinderliteracy activities so it was easy to prep and gave me an activity to use at the end of the school year when the kiddos were ready for summer!


Thanks so much for showing interest in my supplemental close read packet for The Pigeon Has to Go to School! This packet is designed with kindergarten teachers in mind. The packet offers a week of engaging and hands-on material. However, the material can easily be expanded over a longer academic period. The idea of the packet is for one week you can completely transform your teaching with FUN and engaging, yet still rigorous, lessons. The packet is completely comprehensive, so the only thing you’ll need to add in is the mentor text! Here is a quick breakdown of what you get:

  • Detailed close read lesson plans
  • Essential question focus wall poster
  • “I can” statement focus wall poster
  • Vocabulary cards (3 sizes)
  • Poem (Retell card, blackline and retell strips)
  • Emergent poem reader
  • Skill posters (comprehension and story elements)
  • Retell cards (3 sizes included)
  • Assessment and data tracker
  • Thematic craft
  • Daily printables
  • Journal prompt
  • Home connection

**The actual tradebook is not included! You can pick it up on Amazon, etc!**

This packet is not part of KinderLiteracy, KinderBookKlub, or any other packet in my shop! Thanks!
