First Grade Reading Report

There are five aspects to the process of reading: phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, reading comprehension and fluency. These five aspects work together to create the reading experience. As children learn to read they must develop skills in all five of these areas in order to become successful readers. Included on the reading report are indicators that support each of the five aspects to reading. Students will be assessed as 1. NY (not yet developed), 2. D (developing) 3. M (meeting expectations) or 4. E (exceeding expectations).

 

I have included a link, if you would like to read more information. Learning to read opens up the world and most importantly the Word for young readers. Students are excited about choosing books and be able to read it to themselves or others. This is a great time for them to start reading God’s Word daily and developing their relationship with Him. First grade teachers and students have been working very hard this year, and I look forward to celebrating their reading accomplishments.

Mental Health Mondays

While we are incredibly thankful to have our students learning in-person this year, we are also aware that Covid restrictions have increased our students' needs this year in the area of maintaining positive spiritual and mental health.  Even in a non-Covid year, the pre-teen/teen years can be challenging.  

 

Below are all the Mental Health Monday's information that our Campus Ministry team (Grady Brown and Jeanni Miles) have sent to parents. There are important resources, articles, podcast, and more! 

 

For now, we hope these resources will be part of your dinner time conversation with your family, small group discussion with other parents, or for your own encouragement as a parent raising children to follow Jesus Christ in today's world.  Consider grabbing a notebook and taking notes on any thing you listen to.
