First grade is a year of important new experiences for students and teachers alike. Some students will arrive knowing how to read, others will know a few letters of the alphabet, and most will be somewhere in between. Including dozens of reproducibles, this book guides first-grade teachers in the many decisions they face about how to orchestrate effective, appropriate, and engaging instruction. A special strength of the book is the authors' deep understanding of the oral language base of literacy learning - both reading and writing - and their expertise in differentiating instruction for English language learners.

Kindergarten and first grade have many similarities as far as classroom management, organization, and materials: children are engaged in writing, reading, literature, social studies, and science. Although each grade is unique, many of the concepts and teaching strategies appropriate to one can easily be applied to the other. Inside the Classroom is a collection of articles by Bobbi Fisher, many of which first appeared in Teaching Pre K/8. Fisher, who has taught both kindergarten and first grade, is often asked by teachers where they can find her articles. Inside the Classroom is the answer. Here elementary teachers will learn how to set up a classroom environmental conductive to learning, how to create a positive classroom community, how to use reading and writing throughout the curriculum, how to assist emergent and initial readers, answers to spelling questions, and how to conduct a "visitors day".

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of co-teaching on at-risk literacy learners in first grade. The authors selected two at-risk students in September, after literacy assessment data was collected and analyzed. This action research examined the effects of consistent teacher language and parallel student expectations on at-risk students in first grade. Under direction of the two researchers, the students participated in both Reading Recovery and a guided reading lesson. Students were taught three questions to consider when reading: meaning, structure and visual. Running records were conducted daily to determine what cueing systems students had used or neglected and whether or not the child was ready to increase in text level. A weekly book graph was kept on the student's progress. The data verified progress was being made. The researchers also used a teacher survey to collect data from other first grade teachers that had identified at-risk readers in their first grade classrooms. The teacher surveys noted that the students were using reading strategies, but were not actively engaged during independent reading time. The students in the study agreed on the value of consistent teacher language both in the one-on-one setting and in the classroom setting. The researchers concluded that the co-teaching model had a positive impact on students' literacy skills and independence in reading due to consistent teacher language and expectations.

This thesis examined technology dedicated to literacy learning used by first-grade students at a Northern California school and was unified by the guiding question: what is the effectiveness and intended use of computer-based literacy programs? The guiding question led the researcher to ask three additional questions: a) How are students motivated to use computer-based literacy programs?, b) How are the assessment data used by the teachers to monitor student growth?, and c) How appropriately are students placed within each program? Furthermore, the research surveyed overall teacher satisfaction when using computer-based literacy programs. Sources of Data Data were collected from three first-grade teachers and 16 first-grade students in a suburban elementary school located in Northern California. The three first-grade teachers used trimester benchmark assessments obtained through the district to gather formal reading data regarding words per minute (WPM), accuracy, and comprehension. The teachers also used two computer-based literacy programs, Raz-Kids.com (A-Zlearning.com) and Accelerated Reader (Renlearn.com), to supplement and enhance the reading curriculum and to obtain further formal assessment data. The researcher obtained the quantitative data through student reports from Raz-Kids.com, Accelerated Reader, and the trimester benchmark assessments for the 16 students. The three first-grade teachers were also asked to complete an initial survey and follow-up questionnaire to obtain qualitative information regarding use, motivation, and overall satisfaction for the supplemental computer-based literacy programs. Conclusions Reached The data obtained indicated that the use of computer-based literacy programs is beneficial when there is appropriate training and placement. Finally, the study revealed that most students are extrinsically motivated while using computer-based literacy programs and the formal assessment data further gathered strengthens the ability to correctly obtain student reading levels and instructional needs.
