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.
About Shell Education
Rachelle Cracchiolo started the company with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into Teacher Created Materials. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials and Shell Education are two of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world.
