Reading in Grade 1
Parent helpers are always most welcome to come along to reading sessions. Please check with your child's teacher for session times if you are interested.
We encourage children to read at least 5 nights a week, with a focus on practising individual reading goals. These books should be easy as they have been read numerous times at school.
Throughout the year your children will be learning learning about the decoding strategies detailed below, along with others strategies for improving comprehension and fluency. When reading at home they may be demonstrating these strategies to you... and sometimes even explaining them to you!
Roll Up! Roll Up! For the Greatest Show on Earth!
