In kindergarten, kids are piecing together all the words and letters they can decode in order to build stronger reading fluency. This is why their understanding of sight words, or commonly occurring words, is so important. This guided lesson familiarizes first graders with the sight words they will most frequently encounter in texts, boosting their decoding and comprehension skills.
The letters G, B and E are heavily featured in the classic tale of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". This guided lesson uses the story to teach the letters G, B and E in a focused and fun narrative format. Using a story kids most already know gives them a leg up on letter recognition and boosts reading confidence. Don't miss the accompanying printables that can extend learning opportunities.
Working with fiction is often a favorite part of language learning for kids. Help your child enter the world of fiction with our story starters, question and answer pages, sequence of event quizzes, and so much more. If you’re teaching fiction, we have resources, too. Whether they’re learning to read it or write it, we have just what you need to help your student out.
Unicorns, abominable snowmen, and a rainbow’s pot of gold spring to life from the pages of a book. Fiction delights the imagination, but reading fiction involves several skills. Our reading fiction help has got your student covered, whether they’re in first grade, high school, or anywhere in between. Basic skills in learning reading fiction include the five W’s (who, what, when, where, why, how), identifying the main idea, or learning story concepts through pictures. More advanced ways to teach reading fiction include stories that lack conclusions, comprehension questions, and discussing the writings of great authors. Reading fiction help is on the way! Learning reading fiction opens up a whole world of meaning and enrichment. Once your child is hooked, they can put what they learn into action and might even find their inner muse with our early writing resources.
