From the TCT archives: integrating religion and reading
In my first-grade classroom, we focus on a letter of the week, beginning with A and working our way to Z. Mondays through Thursdays, students practice formation of the letter. On Fridays they learn a Bible story that coordinates with that week’s letter.
During A week, for example, they learn about Adam and Eve; B week is the Baptism of Jesus. An activity reinforcing the biblical message follows.
