Mrs. Craig's First Grade
Welcome to FIRST GRADE! I am very excited to have the privilege of teaching your child Reading, Writing, and Social Stupidest this year. Over the year your child will learn and grow tremendously. I want to communicate with you some of the important key factors that will be promoted this first Quarter.
Reading: We will be transitioning from knowing our letters to reading words and full text. By the end of this Quarter your child is expected to read 15 words correct in a minute. We will be practicing decoding strategies to help figure out unknown words and building our bank of sight words. Below are a few helpful tips when your child is reading at home. These techniques can help you support your child while they are reading daily at home, school, or anywhere they can have a book.
