Kindergarten: Skills Unit 9 Reader "Zach and Ann"

The decodable Reader for Unit 9 is "Zach and Ann." There are many kinds of reading that can be done with decodable Readers in this program. As they are 100% decodable, there is almost no wrong way to use them, provided the stories are assigned in tandem with the lessons. You may wish to use the Readers for partner reading, group reading, silent reading, and many other kinds of reading. Beginning in this unit, you will no longer be encouraged to present the stories as Demonstration Stories before students read them, Thus, there is no Big Book provided for Unit 9 or Unit 10. There are specific recommendations to reading opportunities in the Unit 9 Teacher Guide.
