Teaching materials for the 1st grade

Comenia Script® is not just a writing style, but a comprehensive teaching system

Even preschoolers can remember letter shapes, ideally with aids that include the Comenia Pictures font. The shapes of the pictures suggest the shapes of the letters, so they serve as visual help. (School supplies: Karty s písmeny a obrázky / Comenia Pictures Cards; Pexeso “Comenia Pictures” / Comenia Pictures Memory Game; Obrázková abeceda / Picture alphabet; Tahák do kapsy “Abeceda” / “Alphabet” pocket guide).

Before you start writing, train your hand with drawing and large letter shapes (school supplies: Kreslím tvary Comenia Script® / I draw Comenia Script® shapes; Duhové písmeno / Rainbow letter).

Now is the right time to start writing with a copybook! You can choose from two types, according to two methods of reading: 1) a traditional phonics method or 2) a phonemic awareness/whole word method. The flower at the beginning of the line will tell you on which line the letter stands, where it has leaves (lowercase alphabet), flower (uppercase alphabet) and roots (letters below the line):

You will want to practice writing, dictations, and homework with the “yellow workbook” (Workbook A5 for the 1st grade).

And what about reading? Along with the teaching of the Comenia Script® writing, it is also possible to use a common syllable book for the analytical-synthetic method, which contains an older connected-letter handwriting style. The fact that children get acquainted with connected writing in this way also has its advantages – they will learn to read this writing gradually.

To teach reading in the genetic method, the textbook K výuce čtení v genetické metodě je na 1. pololetí připravena učebnice “Písmena s písničkou / Letters with a Song” is provided for the first half of the year, and contains the Comenia Script® writing font. In the 2nd half of the year, it is again possible to use a regular reading book for the 1st grade, which also contains connected handwriting forms.

The reading textbook for the genetic method contains exercises for the development of auditory synthesis and analysis of words, for reading words and sentences.
