First Grade Common Core Language Activities and Printables! - Susan Jones Teaching

First Grade Common Core Language Activities and Printables!

The last two years, I struggled finding ideas, activities, and printables for ALL the Common Core language standards for 1st grade. There are a lot!

Piece by piece, I created activities, games, and practice pages for the first batch of language standards. This pack is already 128 pages jam-packed with ideas and it is only Part One of what will be a two part pack. There were just too many standards to put them all in one pack!
The standards I was able to include in this pack are:
L.1.1a - print uppercase and lowercase letters
L.1.1b - common, proper, and possessive nouns
L.1.1c - singular and plural nouns with matching verbs
L.1.1d - personal, possessive, and indefinite pronouns
L.1.1e - verb tense
L.1.1f - adjectives
L.1.1g - conjunctions
L.1.1h - determiners
L.1.1i - prepositions
L.1.1j - types of sentences (declarative, interrogative, imperative, exclamatory)

Here is a little peek at what's inside:

For each of the standards listed above, there are anchor chart, activities/games, printables, and extension activities for your students to learn and reinforce the language standards!
A closer look:
 A few verb games... 
**NOTE: the creativity must have been flowing when I came up with "The Verb Game"**
Picture cards are just a sampling of the charades center cards I use when learning what verbs are. "The Verb Game" is a board game that helps students practice using the correct verb tense.
 Connect Two!
I use this as a center activity to help students connect sentences using different conjunctions. They cut out the puzzle pieces and try to make as many sentences as they can that make sense!

Where's My Puppy?
After learning what prepositions are, students create this little book about a lost puppy! They must write a simple sentence using a prepositional word or phrase to describe where the puppy is!

Those are just 3 of many, many games & activities included in the pack.

  7. English Pronouns is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you practice the subject, the closer you get to mastering the English language.
