First graders take out their sight word list. Students use flashcards to write and spell each word on flashcards using puffy paint. After the puffy paint dries, 1st graders will review their flashcards by tracing over the letters with their fingers so they can feel what they are spelling.
First graders recognize Dolch sight words on cards and texts. They practice the selected words by creating short sentences. After reading different fables, 1st graders create their own illustrations to accompany the stories. Once they are familiar with the words, they reinforce their recognition by answering word search puzzles.
First graders participate in a number of activities in the literacy block. They work with oo words in the Phonics section and sequence letters alphabetically in the second activity. During the comprehension section, they practice visualization while listening to John Drinkwater's poem, Washing. They identify rhyming words and listen for words that describe the child in the poem.
Sixth graders examine letters and their related sounds, read a word list, and define affix, prefix, suffix, base words, and root words. They complete a chart with consonants, vowels, and blends, and define key vocabulary terms. Next, in pairs they read a sight word list that includes 1000 words.
