FIRST​ ​GRADE​ ​SECOND​ ​NINE​ ​WEEKS​ ​​ ​LISD​ ​Curriculum​ ​Overview​ ​2017-2018

All​ ​LISD​ ​Curriculum​ ​is​ ​written​ ​by​ ​LISD​ ​teachers​ ​under​ ​the​ ​guidance​ ​of​ ​LISD​ ​Curriculum​ ​Personnel. All​ ​LISD​ ​Curriculum​ ​is​ ​developed​ ​based​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Texas​ ​Essential​ ​Knowledge​ ​and​ ​Skills​ ​(TEKS)​ ​for​ ​each​ ​grade​ ​level. The​ ​TEKS​ ​are​ ​located​ ​on​ ​the​ ​TEA​ ​website(http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index2.aspx?id=6148&menu_id=720&menu_id2=785).

Integrated​ ​Language​ ​Arts​ ​and​ ​Social​ ​Studies

Language​ ​Arts

Unit:​ ​​Expository:​ ​Beginning​ ​Research​ ​in​ ​Reader’s​ ​Workshop​ ​&​ ​Writing​ ​to​ ​Inform​ ​in​ ​Writer’s​ ​Workshop Unit:​ ​​Fiction:​ ​Fantasy​ ​&​ ​Folktales​ ​in​ ​Reader’s​ ​Workshop​ ​&​ ​Narrative:​ ​Writing​ ​Imaginative​ ​Stories​ ​in​ ​Writer’s​ ​Workshop)

Big​ ​Ideas:

● Make​ ​personal​ ​connections​ ​with​ ​stories. Use​ ​non-fiction​ ​text​ ​features​ ​to​ ​gain​ ​a​ ​broader​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​informational​ ​text. Identify​ ​the​ ​main​ ​idea​ ​and​ ​details​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​synthesis​ ​information. Use​ ​a​ ​flexible​ ​range​ ​of​ ​metacognitive​ ​skills​ ​and​ ​strategies​ ​to​ ​better​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​text. Describe​ ​the​ ​plot​ ​(problem​ ​and​ ​solution)​ ​and​ ​retell​ ​a​ ​story’s​ ​beginning,​ ​middle,​ ​and​ ​end. Understand​ ​how​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​messages​ ​through​ ​the​ ​writing​ ​process​ ​by​ ​utilizing​ ​the​ ​six​ ​traits​ ​(Voice,​ ​word choice,​ ​fluency,​ ​ideas,​ ​organization,​ ​conventions). Understand​ ​that​ ​there​ ​are​ ​different​ ​purposes​ ​for​ ​writing​ ​and​ ​differentiate​ ​between​ ​the​ ​components​ ​needed​ ​for each​ ​purpose. Use​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​strategies​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​effectively.

Social​ ​Studies

Units:​ ​Science​ ​&​ ​Technology,​ ​Beliefs,​ ​Customs​ ​&​ ​Traditions,​ ​Landforms​ ​and​ ​Natural​ ​Resources

Big​ ​Ideas:

● Technology​ ​changes​ ​the​ ​way​ ​we​ ​live,​ ​communicate,​ ​play,​ ​and​ ​work. We​ ​learn​ ​from​ ​historical​ ​figures​ ​who​ ​have​ ​exhibited​ ​individualism​ ​and​ ​inventiveness. Celebrations​ ​and​ ​traditions​ ​are​ ​important​ ​and​ ​vary​ ​in​ ​families,cultures,​ ​and​ ​communities. Folktales​ ​and​ ​legends​ ​reflect​ ​our​ ​beliefs,​ ​customs​ ​and​ ​traditions. Natural​ ​resources​ ​help​ ​provide​ ​for​ ​our​ ​basic​ ​needs​ ​and​ ​change​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​geographic​ ​location.
