These are homework sheets I created to go along with Lucy Calkins Reading Units of Study for First Grade. These homework assignments go with Bend I titled Getting Smart on Nonfiction Topics. I wanted to share with parents the important work we had been doing in class. In each homework page I describe a way we have been getting super smart about nonfiction topics. Then students are charged with reading nonfiction books and showing off just how super smart they are! Last they record their work in some way, such as telling what sentence they read in a lively voice or writing some keywords from their text.
