What does guided reading in kindergarten look like?

“Research has repeatedly shown that phonics instruction is best when it is systematic and explicit, rather than random and implicit.” – Wiley Blevins. With this thought in mind, we have created a curriculum that focuses on phonological awareness to help students better understand the alphabetic principle. Research has shown that the best indicators of early reading success is attributed to early letter recognition and phonemic awareness. Students should be able to recognize the alphabet in all forms (uppercase, lowercase, different fonts). Students should also recognize that each letter makes a sound and be able to connect the letter to its sound. This curriculum is created to lay the foundation for early reading success.

This resource is also included in the bundle for The Phonics Diner.
