Grade One Teacher's Guide
Reduce your planning time with 36 carefully structured weekly Units of instruction, ordered in a logical, cumulative sequence with plenty of reading and spelling practice in a review of phonic patterns, an introduction of new ones and a gradual but steady addition of high-frequency sight words. More stories and two Reading Theater plays combine recently learned decodable words with fresh vocabulary in a confidence building sequence for developing fluency. Every lesson includes activities for whole class teaching, small instructional groups, independent and partner work, and homework. A strong Assessment component and Intervention strategies provide additional reasons for teachers' success using this guide. Free downloadable teacher resources include unit activities, assessments, homework, accuracy and fluency charts, games, guide cards for teachers, lyrics, comprehension and other resources.
