First Grade Skills Unit 5

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Twenty-two lessons make up a unit that focuses on first-grade skills. Scholars examine spelling alternatives—their rules and patterns, practice tricky spelling and high-frequency words, explore plural nouns and sentences, read a decodable text, answer questions, and draft a friendly letter. Assessments provide observation and data for further teaching.
