Thanks so much for checking out this sample of Good Morning, First Grade!
which you’ll find in the September literacy and math centers. I know how hard
it is for classroom teachers to research and prepare skill based materials for
students participating in centers while working with a small group at the back of
the class. So I decided to create these activities to help students practice their
skills in your literacy and math centers, while at the same time allowing you to
have the opportunity to use creative games in a small group setting. Although
some students will be able to work independently, there may be others who would
benefit by pairing up with a partner. You may also want to delay the use of some
of these activities until later in the fall season if students have not yet been
instructed with the target skill.
There is also a choice to download these printables in color or black/white
whichever you feel will benefit your classroom needs.
I also believe that it’s important for parents to be aware of these skills that
their children are learning in the classroom. A short parent letter explaining the
skill along with an activity is included to help bridge the connection between
classroom activities and parental support.
Finally, a quick assessment is provided for you to see a snapshot of your
students’ understanding the target skill.
