Kindergarten: Skills Unit 6 Reader "Kit"

In Unit 6, students will begin doing independent reading in the Student Reader, to supplement and, in time, build upon their use of the Big Book.  For the first three stories in the Reader, the teacher will model the reading process by presenting each story as a "demonstration story" using the Big Book. The teacher will then present a second reading during which the teacher draws attention to spelling and grammar, and then asks students to answer a number of discussion questions. In the remaining lessons, the teacher will present the stories initally as demonstration stories; then the teacher will ask students to read the stories independently in their readers. These stories are 100% decodable, meaning students should be able to read all of the words via blending. Stories grow in length and complexity throughout the reader as students learn more letter-sound correspondences and augment their decoding skills.
