In first grade, kids are piecing together all the words and letters they can decode in order to build stronger reading fluency. This is why their understanding of sight words, or commonly occurring words, is so important. This guided lesson familiarizes first graders with the sight words they will most frequently encounter in texts, boosting their decoding and comprehension skills.
First grade is a time when students start to take their own initiative in the learning environment. Increasing your students' vocabulary, to be used in conversation and writing, not only increases their ability to communicate effectively, but also to improve their reading and writing skills. By giving classes worksheets, games, and activities to complete together, you can see those communication skills blossom. Students who find these first grade spelling resources too easy may want to look at our second grade spelling resources.
