The Dolch high frequency list was published by Edward William Dolch, Ph.D. in his book, Problems in Reading, The Garrard Press, 1948. The Dolch list of high frequency words comprises the 220 words which were common to the word lists used in beginning reading programs. There is a separate list of 95 Dolch nouns. Many of these words were introduced to your child at the kindergarten level. In first grade we will introduce and learn words that have short and long vowel patterns, color words, number words, word families, r-controlled vowel patterns, and more complex vowel patterns (like –ew, -oo, -ou, -ow). Your child will continue to learn more words in second grade. Our goal at Gilford Elementary School is to have students use these words correctly when reading, writing, and spelling them. We will continue to introduce a few new words each week and practice them in various ways. The words are placed on our Word Wall, a resource used to help students with a visual cue to use these words appropriately in all of their work.
We play lots of games in our classroom to help us learn. Check here for math games you can play at home too. You may need dice, coins, or counters to play the games. If you visit the useful links tab (under Classroom Information), you can find websites with math games and resources as well.
