FIRST GRADE PHONIC SKILL, SIGHT WORDS and SPELLING WORD LISTS for the school year 2019-2020

Please know that we are studying these words in class, playing games, writing the words, learning songs to the sight words, and yet .... the best help is when you make it fun to learn the words by practicing at home. TESTS will be conducted on the Friday or last school day of the week (usually a Friday). 

Any questions - just call SAFARI GUIDE, Mrs. Debbie Dietrich at 262-490-5522(m), 475-5060 (h), or email me at DebbieD@NativeChristians.org. 

 
HAPPY SPELLING!
