A couple of months ago I was contacted by Carson Dellosa and asked to do a review on two workbooks.
Common Core Connections Language Arts Grade 1
Common Core Connections Math Grade 1
Y'all- no lie, these workbooks are AWESOME! Each workbook has a checklist of skills and an assessment. I used the math book pages for reteaching and assessing after reteaching. They are GREAT for assessing after reteaching!
The reading comprehension passages in the Language workbook are a little too difficult for the majority of my class. However, I used them in small group with my two highest reading groups. The passages are perfect for working on finding main idea and detail. After practicing in small group a few times I sent home some passages as homework. My students have really enjoyed them. I like that the passages are brief and the questions require the students to look for answers or use inferencing skills. One of my parents is a teacher at our school. She commented on how much she liked the reading comprehension passages!
