1 Blue Books

1 Blue books are written at the middle of first grade reading level. To read these books successfully, a reader needs to have a sight word bank of 150-300 high-frequency words. The reader can also use words they know to help figure out words they don’t know (e.g., by knowing the word all, they can figure out ball, call, and walls.) The 1 Blue level is a huge jump forward in reading from 2 Green, so it’s important to take it slow! Titles may be subject to change due to availability.
