“Recess Queen” Literary Bundle

Kindergarten • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

This fully scripted bundle of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (25-60 minutes each)  based on the book Recess Queen, by Alexis O’Neill.  Students will:

Your students will enjoy a read aloud, practice letter sound correspondence: Rr, inferencing about characters, and making personal connections.

  • Segment 1: Participate in a shared reading, identify the sound of the letter Rr and find objects that represent the letter around the classroom recording their findings on a T-chart
  • Segment 2: Identify the main charter in the story, make inferences about the main character, and make connections to both the story and the character.
  • Segment 3: students will create a book to give the main character of the story suggestions on how to change and be a better friend.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
