My Students

1st Grade is Rooted in Their Reading

My students need engaging and interactive read aloud books to help teach the South Carolina ELA standards, a variety of reading skills, and strategies that will help create a love of reading.

I am very excited to work with this new group of 1st grade students and help them to become just as excited and curious about reading as I am!

I teach at a low-income school district, where many of my students are faced with challenges in and out of the classroom.

My Project

These read aloud books have been selected very carefully for my classroom. They will help my students become engaged in reading and foster learning. Each of these chosen books is filled with many lessons such as teaching the craft and structure of a text, grammar, phonics, writing skills, inferring, key ideas, details, questions, punctuation, poetry, comprehension, and making connections. Having these books in our classroom will help to create a library of learning for my students!

Each book that has been selected to focus on a First Grade ELA Standard.

They will be used during whole group read aloud time.
