Hoot! Hoot!
First Grade is going to be a hoot! The 2018-19 school year officially began on Tuesday, August 27, 2018.  We met in Room 327 to begin our journey of becoming Outstanding and Wise Learners!

I am Karla Campagna, and I will be your child's first grade teacher. Your child will work towards meeting the PA Core Standards for first grade.  This is going to be an exciting year with numerous hands on activities to develop a deep understanding for math and reading concepts.  We will learn to read independently, speaking and listening techniques, and conventions and grammar to address our goals for language arts.  AR and guided reading groups increase differentiated instruction. Students participate in Daily 5 activities as I meet with small groups to improve their individual needs. First grade mathematics include but are not limited to working with numbers through 120, knowing addition and subtraction facts to ten with fluency, telling time to the half hour, composing and decomposing 2D and 3D shapes,  and making graphs. We will celebrate Super Improvers using Whole Brain Teaching

Please enjoy reading with your child daily. It is the best gift you can give them. The Scholastic Reading Club orders are due by the 10th of each month.  Our code to order online is GWFN8.

I look forward to meeting you on Tuesday, November 20th at our Parent Teacher Conference.

The Skills We Need To Help Us Succeed!
Phonemic Awareness has been shown to be a very powerful predictor of later reading achievement. (Griffith and Olson, 1992)
Phonemic awareness is the understanding that spoken words are made up of individual sounds, which are called phonemes.
I.  Increasing Language Awareness
II. Rhyming
III. Identifying Onsets
IV. Blending
V. Identifying Final and Medial Phonemes
VI. Segmenting
VII. Substituting Phonemes
VIII. Adding Phonemes
IX. Deleting Phonemes
