Tara lives and teaches in a small Missouri town.  This will be her sixth year teaching Kindergarten.  Her heart truly is for her sweet, little Kindergartners!  They have a love for school, learning new things, and most importantly...their teacher!  This past year she started doing close reads during her whole-class reader's workshop time.  After the first week she knew she had found something great!  Every week the kids would get SO excited for the latest close read, and honestly they never tired of looking at the same book for the week... it was actually fun for them! 
Since starting close reads two years ago she recently transformed these close reads into a comprehensive literacy curriculum called, KinderLiteracy! She is really passionate about close reading {KinderLiteracy} and really excited to share all about it today!

KinderLiteracy units are based upon the close read model. Each week you will focus on one text and each day look closely at that text. KinderLiteracy is a 35 week literacy curriculum It will be suggested that you bring in another text for comparison each week as well. The units have been completely planned out for you, but with the ability for you to have them meet your individual needs.

-Teacher "simple read" lesson plans. You will not need to rewrite these lesson plans, unless you choose do. If so I have included editable lesson plans.
-Each week I have planned out the; big idea, focus standard, essential questions, comprehension focus, story element focus, writing genre, phonemic awareness piece, vocabulary, and so much more!
