Study guides—for first grade?
Today’s first grade curriculum is not the same as when you and I were children. These days, young learners are expected know an abundance of information and “big words.” A study guide is an essential and practical tool to help students organize, understand, and recall an abundance of information. Visual study guides are even more effective. My study guides for first graders include oodles of pictures to help young scholars connect the concepts in meaningful ways. Also, important and specific terminologies students must know are highlighted to convey significance.
“How do you eat an elephant—one bite at a time.” The same is true for using study guides, especially with young learners. Parents will read and discuss a different portion of the study guide with their young students every day. The date you provide will let parents know how long they have to study and understand the concepts.
Maps and Globes Study Guide for First Grade is aligned with the State of Virginia Standards of Learning for First Grade History and Social Science. Depending on your state or school requirements the material in this study guide may be useful in other primary grades.
