The Relatives Came Read Aloud and Lesson Plans in Kindergarten.
The Relatives Came Read Aloud
The Relatives Came is such a great book to read either before Thanksgiving or after. I love the illustrations in this book!
With our Engaging Readers, we work on reading comprehension skills and responding to literature.
While I was working with a school in Georgia, I snapped a few pictures. The students in Mrs. Morris’s class were making connections with the text. She added the sentence study to the page as well!
I love how Mrs. Carpenter’s class combined the retelling with the craft from the unit. Look at the license plate! HA! Love it!
You can find this sentence study and the activities listed above by clicking: Reading Comprehension: Engaging Readers November

Poem of the Week
I think the Gingerbread Man poem has been a long-standing classroom favorite! This is a picture of a pair of students using the poem as a center. BUT each week we actually have 5 days worth of whole-group shared reading activities we do prior to the poem being placed in a center.
You can read about how this works by clicking:

Since December is right around the corner, it is time to update those month-long centers!

One of our editable sight word activities for December is centered around The Mitten! I love this book. You can find this unit by clicking on the picture.
