Retell Literacy Center: 20 Famous Story Retelling Ideas and Printables

My literacy centers are a core part of our kindergarten schedule. They are active literacy centers that keep us on our toes and working so that I can work with small groups. Today, let me share my kindergarten retell literacy center directions, expectations and a list of the 20 stories that make up this year-long center in our classroom. Most of the stories that I place into the retell literacy center are pretty famous (or at least well known within the world of kindergarten teachers) but…

The story of the first story Thanksgiving feast is such a great example of what can happen if everyone lends a helping hand and we all cooperate with each other. One of my favorite activities to do this month is read the book "stone Soup" and then make "Stone Soup" with my class. Here is the sign up sheet I send home to parents:

Learning With Literature: The Snowy Day | Creekside Learning

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is a Caldecott winner and a Before-Five-In-a-Row selection. And this year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of this wonderful book. Quite significant, is that it is the first children’s book to have an African American lead character. I have a very clear memory of having it read to me as a child. I remember how magical the book seemed. The giant mountains of snow and Peter, so small in comparison, discovering the wonderfulness of playing in new snow…

First Graders HEART Mo Willems

We have been busy working on an author study on Mo Willems {he's famous for the pigeon books}. My little firsties fell in love with his books after we read Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! This one book led my little readers asking for more Mo Willems books and how could I deny them? So...we read every Mo Willems book from the school's library and read them again and again and again. We compared characters and author's purpose among the books. After reading Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up…
