1st Grade Happenings by Sharon Lott, E-M First grade teacher
Our Reading Goals every day in First Grade are: Phonics-knowing that words are made up of letters for reading; Phonemic Awareness-understanding that words are made from small units of sounds; Fluency-being able to read with speed, accuracy and expression; Vocabulary-knowing words in order to communicate with one another; and Comprehension-understanding what a text is all about. We accomplish these goals each day with Reading Mastery, Core 5, and Academic Games. Students are playing "I Love Bugs" game practicing vowel pairs in the picture.
