Our Review Crew families have had a wonderful opportunity to give the literature units a test run in their homeschool house. While working on our vocabulary, spelling composition and comprehension we have had a chance to read some great books! There are many different levels to choose from, so take a look and find the one, or more, that fit your family’s needs.
StoryTime Treasures is aimed at the first graders who are ready to jump into real books. The books for this guide are Little Bear, Little Bear’s Visit, Caps for Sale, Blueberries for Sal and Make Way for Ducklings.
More StoryTime Treasures will build off of what your first grader has learned in 7 different treasures. The books you will jump into include, Billy and Blaze, Blaze and the Forest Fire, The Story About Ping, Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie, Stone Soup and The Little House.
The Second Grade Literature unit will take your child slightly out of their comfort zone while developing them into superior readers. Your children will continue to focus on vocabulary and spelling while learning more about comprehension and composition while reading Prairie School, Animal Folk Tales of America, The Courage of Sarah Noble, Little House in the Big Woods and Tales from Beatrix Potter
