In first grade, students are linking speech sounds to letters to make words and learning to decode words accurately and automatically. The activities for first grade are focused on these foundational skills.
Below, you will find the tools you’ll need to plan high-quality virtual lessons for first grade. The First Grade Lesson Template includes title slides for all the activities we recommend for use with first graders. The First Grade Sample Activity Sequence provides a sample of a 5-day sequence of activities for virtual lessons. Finally, the First Grade Sample Lesson provides an example of what a lesson planned with the Lesson Template might look like, with all the elements of each activity included. The Sample Lesson corresponds with the plans for Day 1 in the Sample Activity Sequence.
