First-graders will uncover the meaning of unfamiliar words or phrases using context clues within sentences.
Prefixes and Suffixes
Students will use common affixes to understand the meaning of a word better.
Similar to the Kindergarten curriculum, students will practice sorting words into different categories.
Words and Their Use
In this standard, first-graders will establish real-world connections between new words and people, places, and things around them.
What are Synonyms?
Finally, students will continue to learn the subtle differences between similar verbs (like ‘look,’ ‘glance,’ and ‘stare’) by acting out and discussing their meanings.
