Back to School Literacy Fun! Freebies, songs, games and more!!
29 Aug, 2012. 6 Comments. A Day In First Grade, Back to School, First Grade, Language. Posted By: Kristen Smith

We have been working so hard in first grade trying to get back into the swing of things. We are reviewing our letter sounds and learning reading strategies! We are developing our “Eagle Eyes,””Stretchy the Snake sound outs” and how to use materials properly.

The last few weeks we have worked on putting our alphabet in order and making sure we know all of our sounds!
And we LOVE dancing and singing this song:
We have worked on onset and rime with “at” and “an”…
We have practiced using labels and played SUCH a fun game where I paired my students up and they had to label each other!! :)
If you can’t tell– they LOVED this. I mean REALLY. ate. it. up.
Have fun teaching!! :)

  5. Wow! You are amazing! How many students do you have? I have 23 and this year and could really use some inspiring. I don’t want to sound negative, really hoping for uplifting:) I should also mention 80% are way below level, partly due to their behavior. I want to have fun with them, but feel so stressed out by all the catching up we have to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
