Welcome to first grade!
This is a year of discovery and development! Your first grader will begin to blend sounds together as they learn to read and write! In this wonderful year, he/she will develop and strengthen their reading skills and be able to sustain reading independently.
You can foster the development of reading skills in your student by making reading at home with your child a main priority. When you read with your child, you show him/her that reading is important, it is a skill they will use in all subjects for the rest of his/her life. Sharing books with your child not only develops a love of reading it strengthens vocabulary and comprehension. When reading to your child you demonstrate fluency and expression. We want our children to love reading!
