Welcome to First Grade!
Student binders and book baggies will now be coming home each Monday. It is very important that students spend about 15 minutes per night reading. Remember to practice sight words, as progress monitoring is done on Fridays.

Phonics First® is a multisensory, systematic, structured, sequential, phonics-based, direct-instruction teaching system. Students who use the Phonics First® system make significant gains in reading and spelling while building a lifelong understanding of the structure of language.
