In first grade, we focus on making the connection that letters make words, words make sentences, and sentences allow us to communicate our thoughts. We practice writing complete sentences and identifying the parts of speech in our writing and texts that we read. We also practice using the writing process to express our thoughts and ideas.
Below you will find the parts of speech that we focus on along with links to games/ videos on them.
