Welcome! Back-to-School Night Miss Zuks 1st Grade Classroom Open Court Reading Open Court reading series involves the systematic teaching of the relationship of individual sounds to our spoken language, sound/spellings, the blending of sounds into words, and applying those skills into daily reading and writing.
