1st Grade Common Core Worksheets

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) provide a framework of educational expectations for students in reading, writing, and other language skills. The goals of the CCSS ELA are broken out by grade and subject area, including Reading: Literature, Reading: Informational Text, Foundational Skills, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language. First graders can meet some of these learning goals with adult support and are expected to master the basics of the early stages of reading fiction and non-fiction books, learn writing and language basics, and learn to listen and speak in a group setting. See the subheadings for each ELA category for more information on the specific expectations for students.

Themed Thank You Notes

To some, the writing of thank you notes is a lost art. They simply ignore a gift or kindness or perhaps send an email or text message as an acknowledgement. I truly believe your child or students will benefit from the practice of writing thank you notes. They will have the opportunity to practice their handwriting and grammar as well as learn to be grateful when others think of them with a gift or through a kind act. Who can your child thank today?
