Grade 1: Skills Unit 2 Big Book "Gran"

In Unit 2, the teacher will work with a Big Book to engage students in the reading process. Students will also independently read in the Student Readers in this unit, so the Big Book will serve as a source for demonstration stories.

Demonstration stories allow the teacher to model fluent reading and concepts of print, as well as review grammar concepts, reinforce punctuation and tricky words, and discuss important vocabulary words.
