Pinkalicious Lesson Plans:  Close Reading

We love the book Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann so we knew it would make a great addition to our Engaging Readers units.

This is such a fun book.  With close reading, you will want to be sure you select a book that both you and your students will enjoy each day during the week.  As you know, we revisit this text many times as we dive deeper into the meaning of the book.

Doing whatever it takes to get a cupcake? She might just be my spirit animal!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Visualizing

Visualizing is one of those activities that are done during our first reading of the text.  Giving the students the opportunity to visualize is so important, even with picture books!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Retelling

We also want students to pay attention to the text details.  We practice this all year long with the support of each other.  Then when it is time for quarterly assessments (DRA or Founta & Pinnell) the students already know how to retell the text!  Game! Changer!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Making Connections

Here are two examples of student responses for making connections.  One is from a kindergarten student and the other is from a 1st-grade student.

Well… technically… they do have sugar in them, but… Let’s look at this response!!!! Such a great example of the possibilities! Way to go!!! KINDERGARTEN!

I simply love this 1st-grade example! Digestive system… classic! Love it! So many great things in this example. Stretching out the sounds is spot on! Being fearless! I could go on and on!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Inferring 

This is another great writing example.  Reading and writing are reciprocal!  We don’t teach them in isolation!

We also have grammar lessons for each of the books.  This week we worked on adjectives!

I’m quickly becoming a bigger fan of Storytime at Awnie’s House videos.  They are so well done!

 

Valentines’ Day Poem

Each week we use a poem for shared reading!  This is such a great way to practice a TON of literacy skills, but we can also move that poem into an independent student activity.

Students love scanning the QR code in their poetry notebook.  Then they can read and sing along with the poem (even from home!)

Valentine’s Day Literacy Center Ideas

This is a story sequencing center.  First students put the cards in order.  Then they write the text to go along with it!

This set is included in the winter version.  You can find it by clicking:

The TIME ME! Center is always a fun way to practice our reading.  I like that I can customize a set of cards for various students.  Some students may still be working on letters, while others are working on sight words or phrases.

I like to offer a few response page options like the ones you see below (depending on the skill).  I often want my students to draw on the response page.  Drawing is a big deal in kindergarten and the more practice they can get, the better.  As the experts always tell us, “Don’t do something for the student that they can do themselves.”
