Whether you’re new to reading workshop or seeking continuity with your school’s intermediate-grades curriculum, the units of study in Stephanie Parsons’ First Grade Readers help make the road to independence shorter for your students.


Reading achievement improves not with increased testing but with increased reading. And not just any reading, but repeated reading of relatively easy to decode, interesting, self-selected texts. First Grade Readers is a year of classroom-ready, developmentally appropriate instruction for reading workshop. Seven units are filled with the language and lessons of a master teacher and include detailed support structures for:


Goal-Setting: specific rationales and instructional focal points

Getting Ready to Teach: ideas for planning, organization, and materials

Notes on Demonstration: techniques for modeling your reading to students

Teaching the Units: guidance on minilessons, conferences, and mid-workshop teaching points

Reflecting and Celebrating: ways students can share what they’ve learned

Supporting the Unit: differentiation for advanced and struggling readers

Checking In: strategies for finding out what students know and have learned.
