One of five new additions to our popular Read and Understand series, More Read and Understand Stories and Activities-Grade 1 provides teachers with a comprehensive resource of stories and skills pages to supplement any core reading program.
Features 23 stories, each followed by four or five pages of activities for practicing reading skills. Each of the stories is followed by activities for practicing reading skills such as:
- vocabulary development
- phonetic elements
- word attack skills
Stories range from fantasy to the real-life activities experienced by children of this age. Each story consists of 4 half-page sheets, suitable for cutting apart to make little individual books. Page one contains a picture dictionary, illustrating words featured in the story. All stories are fully illustrated.
Some story titles are "Josh's Bike," "I Can See the Moon," "Simple Machines," "Recycling," "The Hippopotamus," and "My Puppy Snickers."
Practice activities for every story include:
- a comprehension page
- a word family page
Other skills practiced include:
- sequencing events
- compound words
- following directions
The stories and practice materials can be used for directed lessons with small groups or individual students or as independent practice activities in class or at home. The reading levels in each book span several grades to ensure that appropriate material for most all students is provided. A complete list of skills practiced is given in the table on contents for each book. An answer key is provided.
Many stories have a response page designed to encourage students to apply and connect story information and newly acquired reading skills to their own experiences. Charming, age-appropriate illustrations throughout. All 144 pages perforated for easy removal. $12.95 each.
