After completing our Kindergarten phonics program, first graders are prepared to plunge right into real books, such as the five little classics shown below. Real books, as opposed to controlled vocabulary readers, capture the imagination of children and motivate them in their reading lessons. Our study guide, StoryTime Treasures, written by Highlands Latin School teachers Mary Lynn Ross and Tessa Tiemann, teaches a variety of language skills in the engaging context of favorite books. Vocabulary, spelling, composition, capitalization, punctuation, and more are included. Your child’s classical education will be off to a superb start with these enduring and timeless classics. And he or she will be well prepared to complete first grade with the next set of classics in More StoryTime Treasures, available now!
StoryTime Treasures (included in the purchase of the Set):
- Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik
- Little Bear's Visit by Else Holmelund Minarik
- Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
- Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey
- Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
This guide gives you all the answers to the questions, vocabulary, etc., found in StoryTime Treasures and More StoryTime Treasures, so you have the tools you need to guide your student through this first grade literature program!
