Skill and confidence building continues in grade 1 as you focus on reinforcing foundational skills while adding new challenges. AWARD Reading Supplemental gives teachers the content to meet varied student needs while staying in step with Common Core Standards.
Developmentally appropriate text in Grade 1 includes a 50/50 split between original narrative and informational text, plus phonics stories incorporating word family and letter combination work. Students return to these high-interest, carefully animated stories for instruction and enjoy access to additional independent readers.
Online text and activities contain embedded support for independence, such as highlighting words at the beginning of Grade 1 and progressing to highlighting sentences, self-paced progression, well-modulated voice overs, modeling activities, and more.
Each online narrative text is accompanied by skill activities surrounding phonics, word, and writing work. Many of these activities include motivational games, such as a chance to ‘beat their own time’ in completing tasks, increasing skill fluency. These support both teacher-led instruction and independence for young learners.
Non-fiction text covers cross-curriculum topics, such as What is Light? and uses the index, glossary, and table of contents to differentiate a genre that supports reference, research, and thinking skills. Embedded videos bring the content to life.
Teacher-friendly, Common Core-driven lesson plans, where every step is in clear, easy-to-follow language is immediately accessible from each online lesson page.
