First Grade

First grade is a year that your children will make so much growth that at times it is hard to believe.  They will enter into first grade as beginning readers with a sentence or two on a page and by the time June rolls around they will be heading into beginning chapter books.  They will become not only more confident in their decoding of words but their comprehension as well.  Comprehension will become a key component as they are reading.  Check out the comprehension tab for ideas.
