Notice

My old Google account reached its' limit, so I lost a lot of images for my blog that were saved there when I deleted it. I'm actively working to replace all my images to each post starting from most recent and working my way back. I also hope to update bad links if time permits. Currently I've restored years 2014-present, I still have yet to do 2013 and back but hope to have them restored by the end of 2020.

1st Grade Reading

After we have finish "The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Reading" we will use that time for the 20-30m morning reading:
  • 20-30 minutes of reading during school-time; books will be in relation to what we are studying in history, biographies, myths, fairy tales, poems and novels that are above K's reading level; narrations 2-4 times a week
  • 30 minutes of "fun" reading in the evenings - books at or below reading level
K will be reading on her own for about an hour a day using the schedule above.  Then we will also be reading to her during parent-reading time.  My husband has decided to read the classics list to K this year and I will be reading the library books that are too hard for her to read; most will correlate with our history/biography studies.

With K's assigned reading, she will also give me narrations of what she read in two to four sentences.  We plan on doing the narration 2-4 times a week for reading assignments, since we are already doing narrations for history and science. 

For parent-read alouds, currently my husband is reading the complete, unabridged "Chronicles of Narnia" to K.  The whole series consists of 7 books.  Then they will move on to the next classic that we have on K's 1st Grade classics reading list.

We will also be practicing reading for fluency once a week using "McGuffey's Third Eclectic Reader".

Audiobooks are playing everyday - when K cleans her room, when she plays and if she chooses, during her quiet time as well. 

Memorization will consist of about 8 poems for the year and 2 history lists - pharaohs of Egypt and the first twenty emperors of Rome.
