this year all first graders will be using the reading curriculum called "SUPERKIDS". it is a phonetic based reading program which includes activities to support struggling readers as well as enrichment activities to challenge those who are already reading.
The "SUPERKIDS" program includes: phonetic patterns which will be a part of their spelling list, as well as, Memory words which are words that need to be learned by sight.
Please be sure to check your child's folder each evening for information regarding our current focus in reading. This program is not based on weekly units, but longer units with more application to ensure mastery.
*Therefore there will be some weeks when testing does not occur and the newsletters sent home will indicate the scheduled testing dates for spelling, comprehension, memory words and phonics. Please read the schedule carefully. Some assessments may be given in the middle of the week.
our math curriculum for this year will be: GO Math. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and spirals all the math concepts that first grade students need to know to gain their foundational math skills. there are times when homework may be assigned online as the year progresses. Information with your child's log in information will be sent home on expectation night.
