First Grade is a very exciting year of growth and opportunity. During the year, students progress at different rates through many developmental stages. The children develop in reading, writing, spelling, speaking, and listening skills. First graders also gain an understanding of literature by studying different genres and authors.
Through hands-on activities using a variety of manipulatives, students will learn a broad range of math skills. This working foundation allows children to problem solve and process complex mathematical problems. These skills will be beneficial in life.
In science and social studies, first graders will experience the world around them. The children will become critical thinkers as they sort, classify, investigate and generate their own opinions.
An amazing year of transition awaits first graders as they journey to independence. Celebrate their learning!
