With a focus on early literacy skills, this resource supports first grade teachers in their use of centers in the classroom. Included in this book are 10 easy-to-use, research- and standards-based literacy centers that each align with essential first grade skills and that focus on the five areas of reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension. You'll find fun, engaging designs and all of the necessary materials needed to implement each center. Each center contains three differentiated activities to meet the needs of all learners, recommended children's literature for additional text support, and a family letter to build a school-home connection. This resource is correlated to College and Career Readiness standards.
