Everyone knows that 1st grade reading worksheets provide great practice in the fundamentals of phonics and early decoding and literacy skills. But did you know that printable pages can also offer extra practice in SPELLING and WRITING skills, too? My customizable worksheets on this web page do just that!
Whether you're a teacher or a parent, you can provide your youngsters with solid skill-building while they have fun!
I chose the picture above because friends are also very important in 1st grade. So why not let your students complete these pages with friends, or at least share the results with all their friends in class? The fun results will encourage kids to complete the page again and again!
You'll need to help the students with the directions the first time they complete the page. After that, they'll be fine to work independently.
1. Give the student the word list on the top half of the worksheet. Ask him to spell any word that fits the category.
2. Give the student the bottom half, or the story. Ask him to copy each word from his word list into the matching blank in the story.
3. Then ask the student to read his story to himself.
4. Finally, ask the student to read his story to you! If you're working with a large group of students, you may have to spread out the sharing time over the course of the day or week.
5. If time permits, encourage students to illustrate their stories. Post them on the wall or place them in a take-home folder.
