First grade is an exciting year filled with academic and social growth. Our Language Arts program fosters our young readers and writers and builds confidence toward reading and writing independance. With daily, focused work-outs in phonics, grammer, reading strategies, and writing practice, students strengthen their pre-reading skills and put it all together and begin reading on their own! Our Math curriculum uses a variety of engaging, hands-on lessons to teach the following concepts: number sense, concepts of addition and subtraction, problem solving, geometry, fractions, and time. We also explore animal habitats and people who make a difference in our world. We are very fortunate to have a variety of specialists who enhance our curriculum in the following areas: art, music, technology, library and physical education. We are proud to provide students with a rich curriculum that is sure to be fun and challenging.
