Introduction to 1st Grade


Students in grade 1 learn the foundational and critical reading and writing skills to proficiently decode text with fluency and understanding. Instruction focuses on asking and answering explicit and inferential questions, using text evidence, summarizing, and engaging in collaborative conversation. Students identify literary elements such as character, setting, author’s purpose, and structure. Students begin practicing the writing process by writing narrative, informative, and opinion pieces incorporating grade level grammar concepts. Students expand their personal and academic vocabulary they can use in their writing and speaking and students develop stamina for longer periods of reading and writing.
