High Frequency & Sight Words


This web page will have our spelling lists, bonus words, and sentences that the students will be working on. Usually spelling, phonics, and grammer lessons will be introduced on Monday with quizzes concluding on Friday.  Should this schedule be affected by days off, the change in quiz dates will be noted in the students' assignment folders and on the homework helpline.  
 
At the start of school, the students will be working on sight words until we settle in and begin regular units.  Please see the list below for a few levels of sight words.
 

The following is a list of words which first graders should know most of at the start of first grade.  If they do not know them though, there is no need to worry.
