Grade Description, Content and Proficiencies
Welcome to First Grade!
Our First Grade students will be immersed in learning foundational literacy skills to become readers and writers. They will also be expanding upon mathematical skills, especially addition and subtraction reasoning skills, that will in turn produce math thinkers. In the process of learning foundational literacy, writing and mathematical skills, students will be learning about the world around them by observing, inquiring and thinking about a variety of topics. Students will establish communities of learning that emphasize individual growth in the area of empathy, perseverance, conflict and resolution, self-reflection with a growth mindset.
