Great for English language arts as well as science concepts, this first-grade Level E reader will teach your students interesting facts about the great inventor Thomas Edison. 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 two-page story 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 single book is an expanded version of one on Thomas Edison found in two other Level E collections -
Level E - Set 2 has 10 first grade Level E books: Veteran’s Day, Thomas Edison, The Four Seasons, The Alphabet, Numbers Around Us, Eleanor “Ellie” Roosevelt, Boiling Jam, Bodies of Water, Our Anthem and Motto, and Making Cookies.
And the Social Studies Level C-E collection which has 12 books -

Level D: Voting, A Good Citizen, Landforms; Martin Luther King, Jr.; Level E: Veteran’s Day, Thomas Edison, Eleanor “Ellie” Roosevelt, Bodies of Water, and 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.
