Welcome to First Grade!
What an adventure your first graders have in front of them! First grade is such an exciting time to see your child make tremendous progress. Your child will be developing his or her reading skills. They will be learning to read whole words in more complex sentences. Your child will be engaged reading interesting fiction and nonfiction in our reading series Reading Street. In addition, they will be developing skills how to work independently and with a group. Throughout the year your child will also be building his or her writing skills. Because we live in the 21st century, they will also be working on their typing skills to produce their writing. In math your child will be challenged to complete word problems, create composite shapes, collect and analyze data, tell time to the hour and half hour, and identify and create fractions to the half and quarter.First grade is going to be a very rewarding year. So get ready to join the first grade teachers and your child on this wonderful adventure!
Look for specific information to be sent home from each teacher.
