Many students love to read biographies! This is a great book for integrating literacy and social studies. In this first-grade Level G reader, students will learn about Sam Houston, who was a governor of Tennessee and Texas and who fought for Texas' freedom from Mexico. Houston, Texas, is named for him.
The book includes two 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 as a single book as well as part of two collections of books -
1. Level G (Set 1) which includes 10 books (both fiction and non-fiction): "Aesop's Fable - The Lion and the Mouse", "Foods in the Cafeteria", "The Bus Station", "Sam Houston", Ladybugs", "Statue of Liberty", "San Jacinto Day", "Bike Safety", "A Piggy Bank", and "Why Work?".
2. Social Studies Topics collection which includes 10 first-grade level F/G book - 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 - 6 which I hope you will find of interest also. Thanks!
