Kindergarten ELA Curriculum Support
Dear Kindergarten Teachers,
The purpose of this tackk board is to provide a place for teachers to find ELA curriculum support materials. The items below support the student outcomes for each unit. As a community of teachers, we are continuing to grow our collection of videos, anchor charts, links to websites and much much more. It is my hope you find this collection for resources helpful and supportive in planning your language arts lessons.
UNIT 1 UNDERSTANDING HOW PRINT WORKS
Letters & Sounds
Have students create a class name book, adding one page each day as a new student is celebrated as student of the day. The picture below is one way you could design the name book.
Use patterned sentences to practice sight words and learn about friends in the classroom. Use sentence starters such as He likes to ___. He is ___. He can ____. To learn about the student of the day and practice recognizing sight words.
Large Letter Cards to Build Names
Concepts of Print
I can tell who the characters are in a story that has been read to me.
I can name the topic of a nonfiction book that has been read to me.
I can give my opinion of a book that has been read to me.

Letters & Sounds
Ways to work on letters & sounds NOT in your literacy block:
o High five letters on the door frame as they leave- velcro hands on the door frame.
o Lining up games- blending/segmenting, rhyming
Line up for recess- tell them a letter, they give you the sound
Give me a word that starts with a certain letter
Think of a word that starts like mom…..(alliteration)
o Transition games
Flash letters from your bag
o Around the building -
