The start of first grade is a time for dusting off the skills and habits that children learned during kindergarten.
In the first unit, Building Good Reading Habits, you’ll reinforce children’s learning from kindergarten, and you’ll establish ability-based partnerships that tap into the social power of peers working together to help each other become more strategic as readers.
The second unit, Learning About the World: Reading Nonfiction, taps into children’s natural curiosity as they explore nonfiction, while you teach comprehension strategies, word solving, vocabulary, fluency, and author’s craft.
The third unit, Readers Have Big Jobs to Do: Fluency, Phonics, and Comprehension, focuses on the reading process to set children up to read increasingly complex texts.
The last unit of first grade, Meeting Characters and Learning Lessons: A Study of Story Elements, spotlights story elements and the skills that are foundational to literal and inferential comprehension, including empathy, imagination, envisioning, prediction, character study, and interpretation.Territory: sales to Australia and New Zealand only
