Expand Image

These are the reading strategies, parts of speech and story elements that we have covered in 1B this year with the definitions that we use when we talk about them. We will do some mini-lessons about some of them, but you can use these pictures as reference tools if your child is talking about on of them and you are not sure what they mean, or if you want to introduce/explain a concept with Grade 1 appropriate language.
