    • A first-grader reading level varies based on pre-school prep and kindergarten reading exposure.

What to expect in First Grade with READING!

First grade is the YEAR; Children learn HOW to read! Many children begin the year by sounding out essential consonant-vowel-consonant three-letter words such as “cat.” Spelling lists and weekly spelling tests are standard practice in most first-grade classrooms. First graders also learn to answer key story ideas, retell the story and describe the characters and by the end of the year, first graders are reading more complicated sentences than just sounding how whole words. Last, they learn how to read grade-level text with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression.
