The 1st grade class focuses on various important subjects: phonics, reading, math, English, social studies, and science. I promote independent and collaborative work ethics. Students participate in educational activities such as word games, math games, spelling choices, partner work, and projects which builds individual and group stamina.
One of the primary focuses in the 1st grade level is developing their reading skills. We participate in The Daily 5 Reading Program, which has proven to be extremely successful in teaching students how to read independently, interactively, listen to fluent reading, and strengthen writing skills using different strategies.Students even learn how to coach and assist fellow classmates in reading.
While academics are an imperative part of the education process, 1stgrade also focuses on the importance of cooperatively participating in school and social/emotional development.By the end of the school year, students are able to read fluently, write complete sentences on their own, work individually and collaboratively, and solve conflicts – along with many other valuable skills that can be applied to real life scenarios. 1stgrade serves as the foundation for preparing students for the proceeding grade levels.
