Teaching students how to read for meaning is definitely the number one key to improving comprehension skills. However, starting this process in first grade will definitely have students excelling in all academic areas. This is a glimpse into a first grade classroom with LeaAnn Brown. Mrs. Brown teaches in my hometown but not on my campus. She sent me pictures of her students using Rainbow Comprehension during small group. I asked her how she liked it and she said, "I love it!"
All American Theme in her classroom this week. My All American Theme is non-fiction and it uses real life pictures. I feel clipart is good but real images will help students gain a better understanding of the information.
Directions are included in each set. Just print and go!
