This year we are WILD about first grade! We will have fun and work hard as we learn about reading, math, religion, science and social studies. It's going to be a great year!

We do Daily 5 during our reading block. While the teacher works with small groups, students are busy Reading to Self, Reading to Someone, doing Word Work or working on ipads. Look at these students working hard to get better at reading!


Did you lose your spelling words?


Looking for a fun way to learn and review math facts? Try SlateMath on the ipad or abcya on the computer.


Another great website to practice early reading skills is Starfall. It is fun and educational and a great way to review things we are working on in school. Most of the site is free.

A great paid site is abcmouse. You can follow your own learning path or pick and choose activities.

Of course, the best thing your student can do to increase their reading skills is to READ as often as possible. Watch for those little readers to come home from school and listen to what your student can do!
