Welcome to First Grade

This is an exciting year, for children and teachers alike!

It is the year most children learn to read and, hopefully, learn to love it!

It is the year children continue building their skills with counting, adding, and subtracting, and move on to learn many new concepts as well!

It is the year children learn about moon phases, light and sound, animals, and insects through many hands-on activities.

It is the year children learn about how people lived in the past, how to tell "wants" from "needs," and how to identify and count simple U S coins.

And finally, children continue their journey learning about their emotions and how to handle them.

Our hope is that by the end of the first grade year, children will have grown in all academic areas, as well as in social thinking and acting.

Our dream is that students enjoy their year of learning and growing with us!!
