Kindergarten Grade Reading Standards Resources

It is recommended that teachers review activities and read the associated directions and/or lesson plan ideas prior to using them with their students. In some cases, the activities are very open-ended and are best used in conjunction with paper/pencil activities or when students are paired and working on a single computer. If the directions and/or lesson plans are not obvious, a link is provided within the description of the resource.

Kindergarten students participate in the enjoyment of reading through listening and discussion. They retell familiar stories and also tell stories for others to write down. They begin to write and draw pictures for other readers. They learn about the alphabet, words and sounds (phonemic awareness), and how to apply what they have learned by matching words to beginning and ending sounds, orally blending sounds into words, rhyming words, and reading simple sentences. Students listen and respond to age-appropriate classic and contemporary literature, nursery rhymes, alphabet books, and beginner's dictionaries. They begin to learn the rules of Standard English and more about communicating with others.
