Reading 1, 3rd ed. Resources

The six student texts contain a variety of colorfully illustrated Bible stories, biographies, fiction, nonfiction articles, poems, and plays. Each selection is developed to incorporate phonics, English skills, word families, and service words. Stories about two Christian families provide good role models. Selections were carefully chosen or written to help students develop a Christian worldview.


If you are using Reading 1 for Christian Schools Teacher's Edition, 3rd Edition, the enrichment vocabulary sentences for teaching words in context are now available on the web.
