    Hi there,
    Does anyone have a good book that they use in Kindergarten to foster the reading comprehension topic of using schema or prior knowledge? I am in Kindergarten. Thanks:angel:

    You could try Reading With Meaning by Debbie Miller. It takes place in a first grade classroom, but many ideas could work for kindergarten.

    Thanks for your help. I have already read Reading with Meaning - Twice in fact!

    I was looking for new ideas from fellow teachers.

    Literature for young readers

    I suggest you to use this book. Is an excellent book with very interesting principles and techniques you can also use Story telling with children now that I'm studying to be a teacher I have learned that it has excellent activities to activate prior knowledge!:)

    There is a book out called Comprehension - Strategic Instruction for K-3 by Gretchn Owocki. It has many different comprehension strategies and frameworks. You can make it work for any grade.
