First Grade Reading: Part 2

Below is part 2 from an article on first grade reading from ehow.com.


  • The number one function of first grade reading programs should be to build a solid reading foundation for young readers. Any reading program for first graders should be in place to help support the current reading curriculum and to be a successful technique to teach English language reading.


  • First graders are learning the basics of reading, which is why it is vital to have first grade reading programs in schools. First graders should be on a certain level when it comes to reading, and according to Reading Rockets, should include: 1) being able to read and retell familiar stories, 2) identify words by sight, 3) orally read with reasonable fluency and 4) attempt to use punctuation and capitalization. Reading programs significantly help first graders reach this level of learning so that they are ready to move on when the time comes.


  • There are many types of first grade reading programs available at schools or that can be implemented if not currently used. Independent reading, where students read quietly by themselves and at their own pace is one type. Another type is a read-aloud program where teachers use read-aloud methods for reading materials that are too advanced for students to read themselves. Other types of first grade reading programs include guided reading (for small groups) and shared reading, where students follow along when a teacher is reading aloud.
