These 1st Grade English/Language Arts Integrated Curriculum Maps provide you with a way to begin exploring how to authentically integrate English/Language Arts and the fine arts at the 1st grade level through aligned standards. These alignments are based upon the ELA Common Core State Standards and the National Coalition for Core Arts National Arts Standards. You will find alignments to Visual Art, Music, Dance, Media Arts and Drama in this resource. Each map is arranged by ELA strand and are color-coded for ease of use. If you are using this map in conjunction with another grade-level, you will find that the ELA strands are all the same color for easy vertical alignment.
These maps are a helpful tool for integrated lesson planning and provide lesson idea starters which will engage your students and enable them to thrive in your classroom.
