FIRST GRADE TO SECOND GRADE readers will read about the many different types of shoes found around the world, including babouches from Morocco, klompen from Holland, lotus shoes from China, Saami reindeer boots from Lapland, cowboy boots from Australia, and sandals from Africa. Each chapter is dedicated to describing a different kind of shoe, listing its unique characteristics. Photographs and maps support the text. Discussion questions after the reading help build interest and comprehension. Learner objectives: compare and contrast, pronunciation.
Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their reading level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.
A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level is to understand that level aa to C provides average kindergarten instruction; D to J—first grade; K to Q—second grade; R to U—third grade; V to Z—fourth and fifth grade. The letters earliest in the alphabet match beginning of the year instruction while letters at the end of each grade range match skills at the end of that grade year.
This book is available as part of a ten-book set in the Level L Library.
