Title I Summer Programming

Planning and Instruction First Grade

First Grade Unit 1: Animal Stories

Bears and frogs don't talk in real life. But they sometimes do in stories! How - and - why do writers create animal characters that act like people?


Included are five interactive Read-Alouds (pictured below) and corresponding teaching cards.

Each teaching card contains:


  • book summary
  • author note
  • overview of key understandings
  • suggested stopping points to elicit students' analysis
  • notable text features
  • support/vocabulary
  • connection to book clubs
  • assessment options
  • scaffolding and extension opportunities

First Grade Unit 2: What I Can Do

Trying something new can be hard. But it also can make you feel good. How do you know what you can do-unless you try?

First Grade Unit 3: Strong and Healthy

Everyone wants to be healthy and strong! How do writers help you find out about healthy habits?

Inquiring Minds Need YOU!

The Comprehension Clubs provide a convenient framework for a two week summer programming that engages students in reading, writing, and accountable talk. The passion for learning and inquisitive spirit will come from you! Be thinking of ways that you can extend learning by placing students' questions, ideas, and observations at the center of the learning experience.

The Reading Strategies Book ~ Jennifer Serravallo

No need to beg, borrow, or steal this book. There will be a copy of The Reading Strategies to use throughout summer programming. Unfortunately, these are only on-loan and will be returned to White River on June 19th. If you are not familiar with this little gem please take a moment to watch Jen Serravallo's brief overview.
