Want your students to
review basic sight words?
I used this video daily with
my struggling readers.

Where formal schooling begins and foundations are laid for a strong education.

While school should be engaging and exciting, the expectations are changing.

Many schools require students to read and write independently.

Some schools want children to know 40 or more sight words and decodable words.

The following pages are a guideline, or skeleton plan, to help begin to correlating your curriculum.

This is not a comprehensive guide - but a starting point to get you started.

Before beginning any lessons - refer to your local set of standards, think about your students' needs and make sure you are doing what's best for your students.

There are also monthly homework assignments that tie into the skills taught in class.

In August we are reading the story "The Kissing Hand", and getting to know each other.

By September we are reviewing colors, talking about fall, and learning about apples.

In October we take time to discuss the Earth and our families.

Most of November is spent on Thanksgiving.

December brings us winter, and many stories by Jan Brett.

During January we are excited to hear about Polar Animals, and Weather.

February holds Hearts as the main focus.

In March it's time to visit the farm.

April spashes into spring.

And we finish our year during May with Animals and Ponds.
