      Hi
      a great resource for you is to go back to the the pre-k teachers and ask how to build from where they left off to help the students transition into the kindergarten class and then follow the K curriculum. Also, utilize your instructional specialist to model the lesson for you. Lastly, have a great selection of books for the students to explore and then make sure you read, read, read to them to help them develop a love of reading and writing. Make sure they have a vocabulary for each book; four or five words you want them to listen for in order to help build their vocabulary and give a purpose for listening. Model everything you want them to do over and over. I hope this helps.
