For the Love of Reading
Reading prompts kids to discover wondrous books that will inspire their imaginations. When a love of reading is instilled in children, they are given a gift that lasts a lifetime. The numerous benefits of reading include enhanced vocabulary, memory, and analytical and writing abilities. Many of the skills that enable these benefits and help children become fluent lifelong readers begin to take shape when they are in first grade.
These worksheets address essential reading skills, such as reading comprehension strategies, phonics and word analysis for decoding words, and understanding of syllables and sounds. There are also opportunities to dive deeper into grammar, punctuation, capitalization, sight words, word families, and more. Additionally, many of these worksheets are supported by comprehensive guided lessons and information on alignment with Common Core Standards.
This collection also includes useful tools that prepare students to become more independent and confident readers, such as reading logs, vocabulary cards, an assessment to determine reading goals, and graphic organizers.
