Welcome to Our First Grade Class!
Welcome to First Grade!
This year the students will be working through the writing process to develop writing pieces in the following genres: Narrative, Informative/Explanatory, Opinion, and Descriptive. In ELA, the students are going to explore fables and stories, the human body, early world civilizations, astronomy, animals and habitats, fairy tales and much more! In Math, the students will take what they learned in Kindergarten to apply it to new concepts. The students will learn the attributes of shapes, coins and their values, measurement, strategies that will help them answer addition and subtraction word problems, and much, much more!
Students will have math homework every night as well as reading. You will see their "Book Baggie" with texts from school to read. Please encourage your child to read other texts as well. Students should try as much of the homework as they can independently.
