Posters Display How The Curriculum Aligns With Common Core Standards 

Whether you teach Pre-K or Kindergarten these lesson plans provide a great deal of flexibility to meet your curriculum outcomes.  Since there are members from all over the world, this flexibility was instrumental in the development of these resources. The focus of our recent development is to ensure the plans address the common core standards.  Each poster below includes a picture related to the Kinderplans lesson plan program so that you can quickly refer to these to see how the common core objectives are met.  These are written in "kid friendly" language. Many of the thumbnail pictures refer to either an emergent reader or activity found within the program that assists in meeting the curriculum outcomes.

Reading Literature

These outcomes are based on fictional reading selections.  Many of the emergent readers (over 100) found within the program correspond to a literature selection but at the emergent reader level (focus on teaching the alphabet and sight words in context).  The literature selections and follow-up emergent readers will meet many of these common core outcomes.
