Reading and Phonics

Phonics Based Spelling
  • Use learned phonics strategies to spell rather than memorization
    • Except for most sight words!
  • Requiring skills taught to be transferred to writing
  • No spelling tests

First Grade Mondo No Excuse Words

Below is a cumulative list of words students will be learning to read in school and will need to practice at home. Please put each of these words on flash cards and practice them daily. Say the word, spell it out loud as they look at each letter, and then say it again (and, a-n-d, and). Students are not responsible for learning to spell all of these, just be able to read them.
