First graders will continue with Saxon Phonics and Spelling. You were introduced to this program in Kindergarten. This is a great program that will help your child learn to read, spell and write. There will be homework every night except for weekends. Starting in September, we will be having a spelling test every Friday. A spelling log sheet will be sent home daily for parents to sign after reviewing words with your child. Please return the signed sheet daily. Students will also be bring home their phonic readers. The phonic readers have skills on the back that we will be doing in class. These are the students books so they can color them at home. Please keep the books in the box, where your child can get to them so students can reread them as much as possible.
