Classroom Curriculum & Popcorn Words

Language Arts

Rigby Guided Reading - Our program was developed to meet each child's individual reading level. It is based on teaching each student how to decode words, improve comprehension, and read fluently. I am excited about this program because it allows each student to progress at his or her own speed. Students are taught seven strategies to help build their reading skills.
1. Look at the pictures
2. Sound it out
3. Look for chunks
4. Skip the word
5. Go back
6. Does it make sense?
7. Ask someone for help

Handwriting Without Tears - The program that we will be using is Handwriting Without Tears, which was created by Jan Olsen, an Occupational Therapist who specializes in handwriting. The students will be developing their fine motor skills and learning proper handwriting habits to write neatly and fluently.

Kidwriting - Kidwriting is also a part of our daily routine during which time we focus on developmentally appropriate writing and spelling skills with attention to each child's individual needs.

Sitton Spelling  - The first grade students use this to help them learn how to spell.
