First grade is an exciting adventure for students. This may be the first time they are in school for a full day, the first time they read an entire book, or the first time they write a story. You can help your students by encouraging them to read independently as well as continuing to read together. This may be the appropriate time to provide your students with their own writing journal. They can write about their friends, favorite video game, favorite movie, or the fun weekend they had.

It is our hope that the worksheets here will be an extension to the learning that is currently taking place in first grade. These first-grade worksheets are intended to enhance your child's skills and introduce new concepts in a fun, stress-free manner.
