1st Grade Spelling

 The purpose of the first grade spelling curriculum is to introduce word lists to the students through the use of spelling patterns.  Students learn to decode words through Phonics and Language development.  Enhancing students’ ability to spell will enable them to write words, sentences and stories that will help them reach their creative writing potential.
