1st Grade Activities

Make Your Own Books: Does your child have a big imagination? Put it to use by helping your child create their very own book! You can have them write words on a paper and then create illustrations to go with them. You can also use a word processing program like Microsoft Word. This is a great way for children to learn how to use computers and write a book at the same time. Bind your book with yarn or staples. Sample Title Ideas: Fun with Grandma, Fun with Grandpa (make great gifts), My First Day at School, My Teacher, I Love My Pet and When I Grow Up.

Sticky Words: Put sticky notes with words on common objects in the student’s room or elsewhere in the house. Then, the students will practice reading those words daily until he or she becomes familiar with the spelling. Later you can have a "sticky test" by giving your student sticky notes with words and they have to run around the house placing the notes on the right objects.
