Language Arts

In first grade we focus on recognizing letters and sounds, recognizing rhyming words, producing rhyming words, clapping syllables, and recognizing sight words. 

Daily reading for a minimum of 15 minutes a day is essential. As you read to your child ask them questions before, during, and after each story.  

Here are some examples:

  • What do you notice on the front cover of the story?
  • What happened at the beginning/middle/end of the story?
  • What was your favorite part of the story?
  • What did this story make you think of?
  • Who were the characters in the story?
  • Where did the story take place?
  • How did the problem in the story get solved?
