Great for English language arts as well as social studies concepts. This first grade Level D reader will teach your students about the famous African-American Martin Luther King, Jr. They will build their vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension as they read the story and answer questions and have fun with the word search.
The reader comes with two 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 story is a similar version to one found included in two other Level D collections -
Level D - Set 1 has 10 first grade Level D books:
Voting, The Moon, A Good Citizen, 2-D and 3-D Shapes, Animals that Run, Days of the Week, Landforms; Martin Luther King, Jr., Matter, Safety Goggles.
And the Social Studies Level C-E collection which has 12 books -
Level C: A Map and A Globe, President’s Day, The 4th of July;
Level D: Voting, A Good Citizen, Landforms; Martin Luther King, Jr.; Level E: Veteran’s Day, Thomas Edison, Eleanor “Ellie” Roosevelt, Bodies of Water, Our Anthem and Motto.
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.
Watch for more books to be posted soon.
