Special Features for Young Learners

All of our print and online features are tailored for first graders. Here are a few special online favorites to explore:

  • Dance Break: Fun music and movement breaks on an issue’s theme.
  • Read-Aloud: Click this button on any issue to hear it read aloud. It allows all your students to access the same reading materials—regardless of their reading level. It also models fluent reading and improves word recognition while helping children focus on comprehension rather than decoding.
  • Hands-on Activities: Young children learn by doing—and need plenty of off-screen time. These activities can be done in school or at home.
