Focus of the Week



There are some great resources  online at www.pcboe.net/les/elderweb/first%20grade.htm. I will be using some of these resources in class. However, our spelling and sight words will differ a little from these resources.  Helpful suggestions: When your child gets stuck on an unfamiliar word, get him/her to sound out and blend the sounds together out loud. Ask him or her to reread sentences to help with fluency and comprehension. Say-spell-say is a great way to practice spelling words, and any game that requires your child to race to a new speed with sight words is always beneficial. Flash cards will be provided each week for use at home as well.


1st grade goal: 24 WCPM (by Dec.) / 47 WCPM (by May)

Students should be able to read 47 WCPM by leaving first grade.
