Language Arts


Our languages arts class consists of phonics, spelling, grammar, and reading. These courses take up our whole morning block. First grade is very phonics influenced. Each week a new phonics sound or skill will be introduced and worked on throughout the week. A weekly list of spelling and sight words will be sent home the Friday before. Please work with your child throughout the week with these words. At the end of the week we will test. We'll test comprehension over that week's selection story and over the weekly spelling words and phonics skill.

Here's some great sites to strengthen reading and phonics skills:
