First grade is a year of important new experiences for students and teachers alike. Some students will arrive knowing how to read, others will know a few letters of the alphabet, and most will be somewhere in between. Including dozens of reproducibles, this book guides first-grade teachers in the many decisions they face about how to orchestrate effective, appropriate, and engaging instruction. A special strength of the book is the authors' deep understanding of the oral language base of literacy learning--both reading and writing--and their expertise in differentiating instruction for English language learners.

Industry Reviews

"This teacher-friendly book lays out the elements necessary to create a well-balanced classroom where children's reading, speaking, and writing can thrive. Great book lists, school-to-home letters, easy-to-manage assessment charts, and well-defined, research-based routines will help new and seasoned teachers create a literacy-rich classroom. If first-grade teachers are going to read only one professional book on literacy this year, this should be the one."--Catherine Kuhns, MEd, National Board Certified Teacher (Early Childhood), Country Hills Elementary School, Coral Springs, Florida

"This is just the resource new primary teachers are looking for. The teacher-friendly text and authentic examples make research-based practices come alive. From up-to-date information on workshop models and differentiated instruction and assessment, to tried-and-true room arrangements, Teaching Literacy in First Grade has something for everyone!"--Nancy Frey, PhD, School of Teacher Education, San Diego State University

"This book provides first-time first-grade teachers with explicit suggestions and guidance for developing a comprehensive literacy program. The many vignettes help teachers see how literacy instruction is delivered in academically rich, culturally diverse classrooms. I especially appreciated the chapter on home-school connections."--Billie Enz, PhD, Division of Curriculum and Instruction, Arizona State University
