Calling all 1st Grade Teachers who are ready to TRANSFORM their ELA block!  Rooted in Reading  for 1st Grade gives you everything you need to facilitate a love of reading in your classroom.  We’ve got lesson plans, activities, crafts, and printables that focus around a read-aloud story each week.  The teacher READS the book throughout the week and models how to think deeply, ask questions, monitor comprehension, and so much more.  Each week we focus on different comprehension skills and strategies that will take your little learners on a reading journey like never before.  All lesson plans and activities are aligned with the Common Core Standards and TEKS.  This can be used as a stand alone curriculum OR as a supplemental curriculum.  You can do ALL of what we include or pick and choose the activities that work best for you and your students!  Want to know more?

Ⓠ There is SO much included, how do I fit it all in?

Ⓐ:  Please do NOT feel like you have to do everything we put into the units.  We try to include everything that a teacher might want, but we realize it is A LOT!  We suggest combing through the units, looking at the expectations of your school/district/state, and deciding which activities would be best for your students.  We do NOT recommend printing class sets of everything, hoping to get to it all. Choose the things that you think YOUR students need, that will be most beneficial, and start there!  Several components can be used during stations, for morning work, or even as homework. Others you may choose to just set aside for another time or not use at all! That’s okay! We want this to work for you AND your students!

 Do you have a year overview and planning guide?

Ⓐ:  Yes!  We sure do!  You can find the list of books for the year, the skills we are going to hit, and the standards (Common Core and TEKS) we will cover below!  Please note that as units are created we may switch things up a bit! The TEKS that the units are aligned to are the TEKS that were adopted in 2017 and will be put into place in 2019. These are NOT aligned with the old TEKS.

Here is our COMPLETE Book List and Year Overview

Ⓠ What is included in the first grade units

Ⓐ:  Each book unit (so 4 a month) will include:  
⇢Daily Lesson Plans for Comprehension, Vocabulary, Grammar, and Phonics
⇢Book Question Cards for Classroom Discussion
⇢Comprehension Focus Digital Posters
⇢Comprehension Printables and/or Interactive Notebook Templates
⇢Comprehension Assessment for the Weekly Read Aloud

Ⓠ How are these units different from your 2nd and 3rd grade units?

Ⓐ:  We have followed the same format for 1st grade, but we have made it developmentally appropriate for a first grade classroom.  We do not choose read alouds that are on a first grade reading level because the teacher is reading the story to the class, and guiding their discussions, BUT the activities that correlate with the read aloud are first-grade appropriate.  We believe that books read aloud should vary in level so that ALL students benefit from the instruction. Here are some minor differences in the first grade units:
➧Lined Writing Pages
➧Many options for drawing or writing when responding to the text
➧Phonics Included
➧Directed Drawings have simplified steps and a starting page
➧Crafts are easy to cut and assemble
➧Vocabulary Cards have pictures
➧1st Grade appropriate activities, assessments, passages, and more
