Welcome to EEKK! Reading in First Grade!

"Elbow to Elbow and Knee to Knee, I'll read to you and you read to me!"
Students use EEKK! Reading to partner read during reading time. The partners listen to one another and help out with unknown words. This is one of our favorite times of the day! They get to show what they know and feel proud about the awesome reading they are doing!


I spy in First Grade....Wonderful Readers!

First grade students use their "Text Evidence Finders" to help them answer their comprehension questions. Students are learning to go back to the text to find answers to questions. They use their "Text Evidence Finders" to highlight the clue words they are looking for. They love being Text Detectives!
