In 1st grade, we will focus on developing phonemic awareness, decoding skills, word recognition, comprehension and oral reading fluency. The more sight words a student knows, the more fluently he/she will read. Practice Spelling words nightly.
Students should read books at home where they know MOST of the words. This increases sightwords, comprehension, and improves our Reader’s Voice!!! Comprehension First …. Walk through the book before reading. Talk about your reading and make connections. Picture books can be Read 3 Different Ways… ask your child what they are!
