In 1st Grade Reading and Composition, students will explore the patterns of literary and informational texts. The course begins by providing explicit instructions for academic vocabulary and comprehension skills. Then, each Unit guides students through the process of close reading. Students will read a variety of literature, including fun and classic pieces such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” Students will practice using reading strategies to understand the literal meaning and purpose of a text. Students will also learn how to use evidence to make predictions and inferences about texts. At the end of each Unit, students will apply their learning of texts by composing their own texts.
