Grade 1 (Sunrise 2nd Ed.)
The Grade 1 Language Arts LightUnits Set (10 magazine-size consumable worktexts) provides the instructional/textual material as well as student exercises plus quizzes and tests. The Sunrise 2nd Edition provides full-color illustrations and graphics with 12 lessons per unit. Unit tests are in the middle and can be pulled out. The wraparound, spiral-bound Teacher Guide provides daily lessons that are fairly detailed at this young level coupled with reduced copies of the student pages. Phonics, spelling, handwriting as well as beginning grammar and punctuation are covered along with numerous miscellaneous skills like alphabetizing. Alternate tests with answers (in case a student needs to retake a test) are provided in the Teacher Guide. Phonics helps include Flash Cards (5”x 7”) and Wall Cards (8.25”x 10.75”).
