Kindergarten Skills Unit 5

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

A unit designed for kindergarteners builds letter-sound correspondence in preparation for reading. Over four weeks, young scholars build proficiency in recognizing and matching the sound of 9 letters. They take that knowledge to read a decodable text. The sixteen lessons follow a similar routine; a quick warm-up, introducing sound and spelling, and completing the chaining activity.
