 This year the first grade teachers will be using Phonics First. Phonics First is a multisensory, systematic, structured, sequential, phonics-based, direct-instruction teaching system.  Our spelling tests will also come from our Phonics First instruction. Students will be asked to spell 4 red words and 6 that follow our spelling pattern in class. They will need to be able to apply the sounds that they learned rather than memorize a list of words.
