Reading

 

 

 

 

      We have been implementing the new reading program, Literacy By Design, by Rigby in the first grade classrooms. Students have been learning comprehension strategies as well as phonics skills.  Making connections between reading and the real world, in relationship to the childrens’ lives, is of the utmost importance.

       First graders participate in shared reading with big books, small group guided reading, independent reading, and modeled reading.  Students often take home books to read with parents and family members. 

      In addition to our Rigby texts we are also using decodeable books from the Wright Group company. These books help children to decode words and learn the phonetic rules for reading, writing and spelling.
