Rooted in Reading Kindergarten: The Bundle

Calling all Kindergarten Teachers who are ready to TRANSFORM their ELA block! Rooted in Reading for Kindergarten gives you everything you need to facilitate a love of reading in your classroom.  We’ve got lesson plans, activities, crafts, and printables that focus around a read-aloud story each week.  The teacher READS the book throughout the week and models how to think deeply, ask questions, monitor comprehension, and so much more.  Each week we focus on different comprehension skills and strategies that will take your little learners on a reading journey like never before.  All lesson plans and activities are aligned with the Common Core Standards and TEKS.  This can be used as a stand alone curriculum OR as a supplemental curriculum.  You can do ALL of what we include or pick and choose the activities that work best for you and your students!

● Daily Deep Dive:  Mentor Sentence
Each week we take a sentence from the book or inspired by the book.  This sentence is the anchor for the sentence study.
This month the Daily Deep is different from the other months.  This month’s Daily Deep Dive is formatted similarly to our First Grade Rooted in Reading.  The students use the printable to dive deep into one mentor sentence each week.

Ⓠ There is SO much included, how do I fit it all in?
Ⓐ:  Please do NOT feel like you have to do everything we put into the units.  We try to include everything that a teacher might want, but we realize it is A LOT!  We suggest combing through the units, looking at the expectations of your school/district/state, and deciding which activities would be best for your students.  We do NOT recommend printing class sets of everything, hoping to get to it all.  Choose the things that you think YOUR students need, that will be most beneficial, and start there!  Several components can be used during stations, for morning work, or even as homework.  Others you may choose to just set aside for another time or not use at all!  That’s okay!  We want this to work for you AND your students!

Ⓠ How are these units different from your other grade level units?
Ⓐ:  We have followed the same format as our other grade levels, but we have made it developmentally appropriate for a Kindergarten classroom.  We do not choose read alouds that are on a Kindergarten reading level because the teacher is reading the story to the class, and guiding their discussions, BUT the activities that correlate with the read aloud are Kinder appropriate.  We believe that books read aloud should vary in level so that ALL students benefit from the instruction.  Here are some minor differences in the Kinder units:
➧Lined Writing Pages and Sentence Starters
➧Printables have very little cutting involved.  If there is cutting, it is very basic.
➧Many options for drawing or writing when responding to the text
➧Foundational Skills Included
➧Directed Drawings have simplified steps and a starting page
➧Crafts are easy to cut and assemble or they can simply be colored
➧Vocabulary Cards have pictures
➧Kinder appropriate activities, assessments, passages, and more

Please note: We provide resources/printables for foundational skills. However, we do not claim that this is a complete phonics program. Rooted in Reading was built to address the comprehension, vocabulary, and language standards. Many schools and districts have very specific plans for foundational skills/phonics. Our goal is to simply provide extra materials for teachers to use during their phonics instruction.
