Many students love to read biographies! This is a great book for integrating reading, social studies, and science. In this first-grade Level G reader, students will learn about the famous American Ben Franklin, who was a statesman, writer, printer, scientist, and inventor.
The book includes three companion worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in this reader are listed on the first page of the three-page story.
This book is part of my series of leveled books which is written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and common core curriculum standards in the United States.
The book is sold singlely as well as part of two collections of books -
Level G (Set 2) which includes 10 first grade level G books (both fiction and non-fiction): "A is For Animal", "A Fable - The Blackbird and the Cherry Tree", "The Kite Park", "Ben Franklin", "An Alliteration", "A Hammer and Nails", "The Fair", "Sorting", "Giving a Speech", and "Compound Words".
Social Studies Topics: First-grade level F/G books which includes:
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.
I have a large number of other biographies for grades 1 - 3 which I hope you will find of interest also. Thanks!
