1st Grade Common Core Language Arts Kid-Friendly Worksheets

1st Grade Common Core No-Prep Printables

How do you have your students soak in the information that you teach in a whole group lesson and practice it in school and at home? I always struggled to find practice pages to supplement our language arts lessons, so I’ve created printables that target each 1st grade Common Core language standard. There are more than 360 pages of worksheets with answer keys and posters to go with twenty different ELA topics prevalent in first grade language curriculum.

What 1st Grade Common Core topics are covered?

  • Nouns (common, proper, possessive)
  • Singular and Plural Nouns (-s, -es, and -ies endings)
  • Subject-Verb Agreement (with singular and plural nouns)
  • Pronouns (personal, possessive, indefinite)
  • Verbs (past, present, future)
  • Adjectives
  • Conjunctions (and, but, or, so, because)
  • Determiners (articles and demonstratives)
  • Prepositions
  • Types of Complete Sentences
  • Capitalization (date, first letter of a sentence, names of people, pronoun ‘I’)
  • Commas in dates and series
  • Homophones
  • Multiple Meaning Words
  • Synonyms and Antonyms
  • Base Words (Root Words) and Affixes (prefixes and suffixes)
  • Inflectional Endings
  • Shades of Meaning
  • Sort into Categories
  • ABC Order

Are they Common Core Aligned?

Yes, the topics listed above are aligned with 1st grade Common Core Language standards.

The packets cover a wide range of 1st grade Common Core ELA subjects which mainly focus on improving grammar and building vocabulary. Whether your school follows Common Core state standards or not, you will find a plethora of valuable activity sheets for your students. These were made with 1st grade standards in mind, but they can be used for advanced kindergarteners or for second graders as reinforcement! 🙂

Below are some examples of my students’ work. There are anchor chart(s) included in each packet that you can use to introduce the concepts. Once the subject has been covered, you can place the anchor chart(s) at the literacy center so that your students can refer to them when working on these worksheets or related activities. You could pair them up with my hands-on learning grammar activities or Boom Cards if you have a digital classroom.

common, proper, possessive noun worksheets

past tense, present tense, future tense verbs worksheets

Posters (Anchor Chart Ideas)

I was contacted by several teachers asking if they could just get the posters, so I put them up in my TPT store. Students can glue these into their grammar notebook, or you can laminate and display them in a grammar/literacy center for your students to use as reference. These can also be handy when you want to create your own anchor charts and you’re just trying to gather some ideas about the 1st grade Common Core language standards.


Remember, the posters are already included in the printable packets, so only get these if you do NOT want the printables but JUST want the posters.

How do I use these resources?

You can use these 1st grade Common Core ELA printables and anchor charts as supplementary tools after giving lessons. Here are just a couple of ideas:

  • classwork
  • homework
  • literacy station
  • early finishers
  • assessment
  • for substitute teacher
  • quick filler


I found it easy to organize the entire bundle by dividing them into little sections in a clear file binder. That way, I can take out the pages I need quickly and make copies for my students.

You can also bind the pages into a book for each student, as shown in the picture below.

SAVE by Getting the Bundle

For those of you who want all twenty packets, I have put them into a mega bundle and you can get it at 20% off. My aim was to help create a comprehensive go-to resource when it comes to teaching first graders a subject that could seem daunting or boring to teach to young learners.

Each packet is filled with a variety of 1st grade Common Core ELA pages and the level of difficulty increases throughout the packet. If you have multiple levels in your classroom, you can easily differentiate your lesson using these packets.
