Welcome to First Grade!

The true magic of first grade happens as children develop the ability to understand what letters and numbers really mean. When they’re ready, they’ll be able to "crack the code" and read words.

The first grade year is a magical one! Your child will develop into a confident reader, writer and mathematician! Of course, each child will progress at an individual rate, but success is measured not by where they finish, but by how far they've come! The first grade year is also one of transition to the more formal learning environment. Children will still have many opportunities to work and play in hands-on activities, but will also be involved in independent tasks as well.


This website has been created for parents and for students as a way to communicate what is happening in our first grade classroom as well as share activites that can be used at home to help deepen the love of learning.
