I have the kindergarten emergent menu with Common Core standards. I’m wondering if there is a regular menu for Kindergarten with CCSS?

No, you’d just start with the first grade menu, using only the strategies that apply from there after you use the Emergent Menu.
BTW, the Emergent Menu is in the process of being redone by Gail and Allison.

Really?! Can we get a sneak peek?

Ha! I haven’t seen it either. Anticipation . . .

When?  We have been hearing about new book editions as well.

It was mentioned on Facebook live Dec 6 about the new emergent menu. Reception was so bad that I couldn’t understand what they said. It will be released in January or it IS released. Do you know?

It’s not released yet, and the live event had to be cancelled due to the technology problems.

Any release yet on new menu and I just haven’t found it?
Do I have the correct understanding that the kinder menu now is more a checklist? We should be looking at 1st grade menu and teaching the kinder standards from that?

Allison posted this response about a week ago in the Daily 5 and CAFE Quick Start Seminar about the Emergent Menu:
“Great question! The emergent menu is there for our emerging readers. When I taught Kindergarten I looked at the strategies on the Emergent menu to see what my whole class needed and those were the first strategies I taught. Then I started to add strategies from the regular cafe menu. So, in the end, it ended up being a blend of the two that was posted in the room. Gail and I are actually working on merging the emergent menu with the regular menu. You will see the new version come out in a few more months. So exciting!”

Any update on the new kindergarten menu? I’m so excited to take a peek at it!

I know . . . the suspense if killing us, right?? I’ll check with Ali and Gail again.

Anyone know the status of the new kindergarten CAFE menu?

Yes!   there are menus with the CCSS standards for all grades.  Here's a link: https://www.thedailycafe.com/content/cafe-common-core-alignment%E2%80%94... This will take you to the matrix for all grades, and a link is provided there for individual grade menus.

I don't see anything for kindergarten.  The Sisters talked about having an updated Kindergarten menu last year.  I was hoping it was released.

Jody, Gail and Allison are changing their thinking about the pre-reading or emergent skills--that the menu was really never designed to be up in the classroom, but as a guide for the teachers.  As soon as students start  with reading strategies, the CAFE menu can start growing in the classroom.  There will be information about emergent reading skills coming in a different form, but it has not been finalized as of yet.  I know you're reallly anxious to find out, and I understand, but hold on just a bit longer :).

There hasn't ever been a kindergarten menu, per se--it's always been the Emergent Menu and the CAFE menu.
