First Grade


Reading and Math

This slideshow contains pictures of Summer Ferguson's class learning through guided reading and math.

Guided reading is fun small-group instruction time focusing on story elements, vocabulary, and fluency. Groups of four or five meet daily for one-on one-instruction and use a variety of resources and "props" to make the stories come to life.

The class also uses a variety of materials, including erasable markers for writing on desks, to make math instruction come to life.
