Indiana State Standards for Language Arts: Grade 1
Currently Perma-Bound only has suggested titles for grades K-8 in the Science and Social Studies areas. We are working on expanding this.
IN.1. Reading: Word Recognition, Fluency, and Vocabulary Development: Students understand the basic features of words.

1.1.14. Decoding and Word Recognition: Read common word patterns (-ite, -ate).
1.1.15 Decoding and Word Recognition: Read aloud smoothly and easily in familiar text.
