Hello and thank you so much for stopping by today! I am so thrilled to be able to share my brand new program, KinderReaders™. I will do a mix of typing and videos! I hope not to repeat myself a ton! If you are curious about starting guided reading, have taught guided reading for 20 years or are thinking to yourself, “What is guided reading?” Well, I feel that this post will be intriguing for all of those levels and then some! As stated above, KinderReaders™ is a leveled guided reading program. The program has kindergarten aged students in mind but is great for any students at levels NR-D! KinderReaders™ is equipped with scripted lesson plans for each book. This will offer a path for those new to guided reading and still at that, a possible new way of thinking for those experienced guided reading teachers! ***Please note that I will also be offering a free book of my KinderReaders program below! You will snag the lesson plans, easy readers, mix and fix sentence, running record, INTERACTIVE book and Spanish version as well!***
I will be explaining each level of KinderReaders™ in much detail below! However, here is a quick overview of the program!
KinderReaders™ is a program designed to assist teachers, paraprofessionals, ELL staff, RTI teachers, home-school parents and any other individual striving to teach reading to a young child. KinderReaders™ is a systematic program. What does this mean? Each text of KinderReaders™ is given the same materials and presented to the students in the same manner. This allows for student growth because new routines are not being taught, only new concepts like new texts in this case. The program includes all of the necessary pieces and is designed in a way that allows you to simply print, prep the materials and add in students!
What exactly is included in each level?
– 20 simple “print and teach” scripted lesson plans
– 20 running records
– 20 easy readers
– 20 *INTERACTIVE ENGLISH READERS*
– 20 *INTERACTIVE SPANISH READERS*
– Reader strips for level NR and AA books
– “Mix and Fix” student sentences for all levels
– Picture cards for all 20 themes
– Word cards for all 20 themes
– Color and Black/White versions of the student materials
– Helpful video for printing easy readers
Now let’s take a close look at each level!
Click the video below to see in detail of the material for levels NR, AA and A!
Below you can see an overview of what is included in this set!
Level A book also contain a running record. Assessments during guided reading are not a “must” but they certainly allow you to understand the students as independent readers.
Level NR has it’s own matching 1:1 strips for each book. These are perfect for building fluency. Remember that we are using this level for those kiddos that are new to “reading.” This is a confidence booster and then we can get them transferred over to words!
In level A, the students are able to move on from the 1:1 strips and start to work on mixing and fixing sentences! Don’t forget that you can have the kids work on mixing and fixing on the tables. Then, they can transfer them onto paper!
As in all of the levels… the materials are translated in Spanish as well!
Also included are interactive books! In this first set, all of the 20 level A books are available in an interactive format!
Woohoo! Let’s take a closer look at level B!
Level B offers 20 easy readers and 20 matching lesson plans! All of the material from level A is also included in Level B! Level B’s lesson plans are slightly different as each book gets two days!
Moving right along! How about Level C?
Level C is where we really start to bump up the expectation during guided reading! This level has the addition of a “Think and Write” and “Read and Match”.
The Read and Match is an excellent opportunity for the students to see the text out of context. Even though that sounds kind of silly being that it is the same words… they are still still out of the actual book which can be tricky!
Last but NOT least… let’s take a look at Level D!
Level D really bumps up the “fun factor”. In Level D the students will be exposed to texts that contain very little repetitive phrases and will also get to see something new, comprehension quizzes! I mean who doesn’t love a comprehension quiz? Ha!
Below is a look at the Level D lesson plans!
You can have the kids glue their comprehension quizzes into their reading notebooks!
In Level D, the Think and Writes are completely open ended.
Below is a look of the interactive version placed onto an Ipad! The interactive versions will work on ANY device that has Microsoft Powerpoint! You do have to have that! On my Ipad, I downloaded the PPT app!
