Yes, it's been a long time. Thanks for not giving up on me. Today's post will be a quick one! I came across this great article on read alouds with the kindergartener and first grader. It caught my eye because it didn't have a list of all the books kids should be able to read but had a discussion on the types of books kids need to be reading. There is a step system of Core vocabulary that puts things in perspective for the primary teacher. Check it out.
