Tips for Teaching First Grade Reading

First grade reading is an important phase in your child's literacy development. Not only does it build upon the phonics skills introduced in kindergarten, but it prepares children for chapter books in second grade. For more support with phonics, check out our phonics worksheets. By the end of first grade, early readers should be able to:
  • Interpret illustrations in order to make meaning about a text.
  • Decode unknown words.
  • Determine cause and effect within various texts.
  • Question the author's meaning.
  • Predict what they think will happen next in a story.
  • Know what types of books they love the best!
