First grade is a fun time for readers. Children are discovering words, meaning and understanding of reading. This year we will look at many strategies to decode words to help become better reads. We will also learn ways to deepen our comprehension about books. Most importantly, we will be readers! We begin our year with habits of good readers and reading a lot. We will investigate different genres and characters throughout the year. Like any new activity if we want to become better we need to practice. So first graders Practice, practice, practice reading everyday.
Below is a chart we have been using in class to help the students figure out tricky words.
