Because I’ve been there.
I’ve spent too many nights lying awake, unable to turn my brain off because I have SO many things to do at school the next day.
I’ve sat comatose in the parking lot for 15 minutes after getting to school, unsure if I have the energy to manage 23 five-year-olds that day, much less get them to learn.

"To say KLC has been helpful in my classroom is an understatement! Your detailed resources and ideas have transformed me from being an anxiety ridden, over worked teacher into a well planned and calmer (I think anxiety of doing everything right will always be my way) teacher, wife and mother... notice how I put wife and mother in the second half... it's because before I was a "teacher above all things". I needed to stop doing that and focus on the important people in my life and not just the "important little people" in my life. Thank you for Kindergarten Literacy Club and thank you for your wonderful resources!"
"I love the Kindergarten Literacy Club!! The materials meet the levels of my students. The guided reading books are leveled and have helped my students move from aa reading levels to C readers!! The assessments are spot on and truly help me plan for further instruction! I use the center activities as warm up and word work before my small group instruction, it works!! Thanks for everything, Alison!!"
A club membership costs less than 50 cents a day.
A club membership is ideal for any Kindergarten teacher who wants to save time AND deliver outstanding reading and writing instruction.
It’s for new teachers AND veteran teachers. (Whether you’re new to the profession or have tons of experience, everyone needs fresh ideas and support!)
A club membership is not recommended for teachers of grades other than Kindergarten.
This may not be a good fit for you if you need teaching materials in Spanish, Australian English, or another language. All materials will be provided in U.S. English, and some will not be editable.
About the Kindergarten Literacy Club
A membership costs $14 per month, paid monthly. Or, save money with a 6-month membership ($70, which comes out to be $11.66/ month). Save even more with a 12-month membership ($126, a cost of $10.50/ month)!
No, the resources in the Membership Area are ONLY for you, a Kindergarten Literacy Club member!
No. I will continue to provide occasional professional development webinars for K-2, but these Kindergarten-specific webinars and monthly sessions will only be available to Kindergarten Literacy Club members.
No problem! You can cancel anytime.
No. Each membership is for only one teacher.
No problem! You'll still receive email updates with information shared in the Facebook group (both by Alison and by other club members!).
If you need guided reading books and lesson plans + centers activities (which can also be turned into small group activities), then yes!
It depends! If you feel that your students are, for the most part, working at a Kindergarten level, then yes. However, if you eventually find that the club isn't a good fit, you can cancel anytime!
Just a computer, phone, or tablet! You can access the materials anytime (when you have an internet connection). Any student activities that are technology-based will also have paper-based alternatives.
Yes! Each month, you'll receive centers materials with multiple options to help you differentiate to meet your students' needs. The monthly guided reading books will be offered at 3 different levels and include different options in the lesson plans.
There will be a balance of activities - some that require no prep or no printing, and others that require a bit of printing and/or prep. Digital versions of the guided reading books are included (you also get single-sided or double-sided versions of the books to print). Also, ALL color materials are provided in black and white. Overall, the materials will save you time and not require tons and tons of ink or prep time!
"I was excited about the Kindergarten Literacy Club when you first announced it, having attended several of your webinars! I feel the price I paid is totally worth it - to have fresh ideas, centers, guided reading materials and timely support in my inbox each month has been so helpful! I look forward to the first of the month when I get to see my new goodies! My focus this year has been guided reading and literacy intervention, and, in order to accomplish those goals, workable centers for students. Being a part of KLC has saved me SO MUCH TIME and energy as I plan for centers, guided reading, and intervention. My advice to anyone who is on the fence about joining - just do it! Think about all the time you have spent searching Pinterest and Teachers Pay Teachers for specific activities and the money you have spent on this or that just because you needed something ASAP. With the KLC, you have access to tons of material, including cute seasonal activities, with the click of a mouse!"
