Combining reading and social studies activities, this first-grade Level F reader provides interesting facts about Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone. Your students will build their vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension as they read the story, answer questions, and have fun with the criss cross puzzle.
The two-page story comes with three worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in the reader are listed on the first page of the story.
This single book is an expanded version of one on Alexander Graham Bell found in two of my book collections -
"Level F - Set 2" which includes 10 first grade level F books (both fiction and non-fiction): Basic Organisms, A Strawberry Patch, The Playground, Alexander Graham Bell, Garrett Morgan, Facts about the Alamo, Constitution Day, The Air You Breathe, Jobs, and A Train.
And "Social Studies Topics: First-grade level F/G" which includes 10 books:
F: Constitution Day; Facts about the Alamo; Garrett Morgan;
Jobs; Alexander Graham Bell; G: Why Work?; San Jacinto Day;
Statue of Liberty; Sam Houston; and Ben Franklin.
My original series of leveled books is written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and common core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States. Great for ESL students, too.
I have a large number of other biographies for grades 1 - 3 which I hope you will find of interest, too.
