Meaningful Mini-Lessons & Practice: Language Grade 1
- Competency in conventions of grammar, usage, and mechanics
- Ways to use language to convey meaning effectively
- Vocabulary acquisition skills, including strategies to clarify the meaning of words in context and multiple-meaning words
In this series, mini lessons give targeted instruction in language by breaking them down into manageable chunks in a structured format. Language lessons focus on grammar usage and vocabulary practice. Each standards-based lesson gives step-by-step instructions (which should take about 10-15 minutes). The lessons are followed by guided practice pages with instructional support and independent practice pages to reinforce each concept. An answer key and assessments are included in the back. If you are looking for a resource to teach standard-based language, this series provides purposeful mini lessons and guided practice to build your student’s competency in these areas of language arts.
These materials are also comprehensive in scope but are supplemental as opposed to more complete programs.
