First Grade Learning

Text-to-Text Connections

First grade students have been focusing on learning Text-to-Text connections. Deep Text-to-Text connections help us understand text, characters and settings between two stories. Here are a few of the learning targets that focused our learning:

  • I can understand the story better when I can make connections between texts.
  • I can find things that are the same in two different texts on the same topic.
  • I can find things that are different in two different texts on the same topic.
  • I can find feelings or experiences that are the same in two different texts.
  • I can compare and contrast what happens to characters in stories.
