You and your students are invited to a BOOK SOCIAL! What does that mean exactly?! Well, let me explain! Book Social is a collaborative project created by me (@MrsHenryInFirst) and Jordan Dunagan (@heyheyfirstgrade). Book Social features books each month for the FIRST GRADE CLASSROOM that promote SOCIAL SKILLS while covering various first grade literacy standards.
Why the focus on social skills? Well, it's how we communicate with each other and therefore vital to a healthy and positive classroom environment. As we communicate more and more through technology, it's more important now than ever before! What better way to introduce and practice these important skills than with literature. Each book that is included in Book Social is specifically chosen with a theme in mind to help 1st graders learn and communicate better with their peers.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN EACH BOOK SOCIAL UNIT?
