Fundations is a K-3 phonological/phonemic awareness, phonics and spelling program.  We will be using this intensive program throughout our year in first grade.  Your child will continue with the program in second and third grade. Fundations lessons focus on carefully sequenced skills that include print knowledge, alphabet awareness, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, and spelling.  

    Fundations Home Support Packets
    A great way to practice the skills we are working on in Fundations is by completing the Home Support Packet.  A Home Support Packet goes home at the beginning of each new Fundations unit.  Each packet provides you with information about the skills we are working on in that unit as well as at-home activities to practice those skills.
    The Home Support Packets do not need to be returned to school but we highly encourage you to complete the activities in them!
