Grade 1 English Language Arts
Apply phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3)
Why? Understanding phonics helps students learn to read and gives children the ability to read more complex words and texts.
How? Practice this standard by asking your child to identify written words on a page and to sound out words as you read.
What? Grade 1 phonics means many things, such as understanding syllables, breaking words into syllables, reading regularly spelled one-syllable words, understanding how “silent e” changes the sound of vowels in words, and more.
