Kindergarten instruction should include a balance of systematic, sequential instruction in foundational skills with reading comprehension through the read aloud. When you plan your instruction, it may be useful to refer to the Instructional Practice Guides for K-2, found here: http://www.achievethecore.org/ela-literacy-common-core/instructional-practice/
Another resource to consider would be to review the read alouds in Appendix B of the CCSS (http://www.corestandards.org/assets/Appendix_B.pdf). This selection of books, while expressly does not represent a partial or complete reading list, offers a guidepost for texts of appropriate complexity for each grade level.
If you are looking for a more concrete example, consider looking at the Core Knowledge resources posted here: http://www.coreknowledge.org/ckla-files#!/kindergarten. This curriculum illustrates the rigor of the read aloud (check out the vocabulary in the listening and learning) which should be paired with systematic instruction in foundational skills.
