September Read Alouds for Kindergarten

Created engaged learners with these read alouds for September! Your students will learn all about apples, the five senses, transportation and community helpers!


September rolls around, and everything is rocking and rolling (well, usually). After spending the

start of school diving into print awareness, September means that we begin to put more of those

listening comprehension skills into the rotation. I also begin to bring more books in that cover

science and social studies standards as well.

cost to you. That'll help me keep this old blog running!

Apples

So I have a secret. I do not like apples. Matter of fact, I hate them! When I moved to kindergarten

from first grade, I did not want to even teach this unit. One year I decided to, and it was the best

thing ever! My students had so much fun, and I've been hooked ever since! It's a great starting

point for discussing life cycles, and comparing and contrasting items (taste test anyone).  It's

also a fantastic introduction to non-fiction text.

Helpers in Your Neighborhood

We love to talk about community helpers! It's always a great unit of study because the people

that my students always recognize are our community helpers. It also opens up a conversation for

other community helpers that might not be in the book. When possible, it's also great to bring in

local community helpers. We often have our fire department come out, and when they see that fire

truck and ladder up close, they are fascinated with it all!

Look, Listen, Taste, Touch, Smell

The five senses are also wonderful to teach about in kindergarten. I love that it can be such

a hands-on unit, much like apples. Each of the five senses will be introduced to the students,

they'll have a chance to learn what each one does and label the five senses for their weekly craft.

We also do a taste test during this week as well, such as salty, sweet or sour things, etc. 

Transportation

Your students will learn about the different modes of transportation with this book companion. 

Students will also have the chance to compare and contrast transportation today with transportation 

in the past. The vocabulary pictures for this book are awesome, and I love the discussion that it 

provides! It also has that visual component for students who need the support.


I love to bring these read alouds in during the month of September, and I love to use these resources

to bring them alive. Each resource contains headers that can be used to create anchor charts and 

each book companion contains a craft as well. You can find the book companions here, and you can 

grab the books from Amazon here.

Pin for later!
