Reading and Spelling

Does your first grader have trouble with his reading skills? Maybe they need a little boost in spelling. Reading comprehension and spelling are a couple; they go together.

It is crucial for your first grader to master five basic skill areas–phonemic awareness, phonics, reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency in order to be a successful reader.

As your child learns, he builds upon these skills and the skills build upon each other. Check out a good reading skills pyramid to find out what your child needs to master and when.

A fun way to practice reading and spelling skills is by playing online games. Games help reinforce skills being learned.
