This first grade Level E reader is a excellent resource for teaching about Veterans Day. Students will learn about why and when we celebrate Veterans Day as they encounter new vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension. There is a two-page worksheet which accompanies the two-page story.
This book is one of an original series of leveled books which I have written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and general core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States.
There are 20 books (combination of fiction and non-fiction) per level A-U (Kindergarten through 5th grade reading) for a total of 420 books. There are 8 books per level V-Y (6th grade reading) for a total of 32 more books. Books through Level M are now posted with more books being added each month.
Each book comes with a companion worksheet which reinforces literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in each book are listed on the first page of each story.
