Week 1 and 2 Curriculum Map for Kindergarten

In order to have alignment, our school is requiring teachers to team up by grade level and curriculum map.  I am so glad because everyone has been doing their own thing for so long.  I am sharing with you our curriculum map for the first full week of school for kindergarten.  We start instruction the first full week of school, which gives us 3 days to learn rules and procedures.  Our district uses the balanced literacy approach which consists of interactive read aloud, guided reading, reader's workshop mini-lesson, word work and shared reading.  As you can see, we won't be doing guided reading groups until later on (after we get to know the kiddos a bit more).  There are no word work because we are currently waiting for a phonics program.  I am crossing my fingers that we will adopt Fountas and Pinnell Phonics Program!  Comments and feedback are appreciated :)
