We us the Macmillan McGraw-Hill reading series in 1st grade.  This series includes 5 different readers and includes written practice in word work and comprehension.  We also use the Saxon-Phonics program which is an intense program to help beginning readers learn letters, sounds and phonetic rules.

Students are exposed to a variety of literature both fiction and nonfiction.  They read and are read to daily.  They also study several famous authors and their work.

First grade students also begin participating in the accelerated reading program.
