1st Grade Lesson Plans
WOW is organized around scientific topics like mysterious weather and wild animals that engage children in rich conversations. These topics support rich vocabulary while simultaneously helping children learn about life sciences, biological sciences, and physical sciences. You’ll find lots of opportunities for open-ended discussions around meaningful, and engaged learning.
Each lesson plan includes six easy-to-implement topics per grade level (PreK, K, 1, 2).
Each text set includes 5 Texts, a Teacher’s Guide, 15 Picture Cards, and a Topic Poster. Additional provided resources include Home Connections, Extension Activities and Lesson Plans Strategy Notes.
Children will learn over 100 words for each topic. We have found that repeated exposure through book reading activities supports content-rich learning and improves vocabulary, conceptual knowledge, and comprehension.
