Good Fit Books!
books I choose by myself are the best for me to read!
Welcome to 1B
Our systematic, explicit phonics program helps students develop reading and writing skills.
We spend 70 minutes of our day participating in the Daily 5!
This is our time for making books! We are authors in 1B.
The Daily 5
Helping your child
Where can I get books?
This is a truly wonderful place to order books for your child. Place your order online or send your order in with your child and I will mail it in!
Raz-kids is a tremendous resource for your child. He or she can practice reading good fit books and learn how comfortable (and fun!) it can be to read a book at their own good fit level. Login with my username to get started
Your Local Library!
The Grafton Public Library is a marvelous place to get lost in a book! The wonderful staff will be able to support you and your child in finding high interest books. One of the best parts is if they don't have a book you want they will help you to find it at another library and get it for you!
Your Local Library!
Other great places to get books include local bookstores and many thrift stores
My child is reading a good fit book, now what?
