Read Kansas! Primary

The lessons designed for the primary grades (K-3) have been developed to increase students' appreciation of Kansas and its history. Each lesson emphasizes reading skills normally taught in the primary grades. The online version includes the correlation of the Kansas Reading and Writing standards with the newly adopted Kansas College and Career Ready Standards (KCCRS). The lessons cover a variety of topics, all of which are included in the Kansas social studies standards.  Each lesson comes with attractive student cards, complete lesson plans and activities.
