Grade 1

Grade 1 is such an exciting year!  As children build independence and learn about respect and responsibility as members of a classroom community, they develop a love of reading and blossom into strong readers during Reading Workshop. Students practice their decoding and comprehension skills, study characters in fiction books, and learn about the text features in non-fiction books.  As they flourish into young, budding authors in Writing Workshop, learners progress through the stages of the writing process, crafting a variety of fiction and nonfiction pieces.  Children solidify early numeracy skills and begin to apply various problem-solving strategies and explain their thinking as they play engaging math games.  Students also learn about shadows, living things, forces and motion, and life-cycles through scientific observation, activities and experiments designed to deepen their understanding.  It is a fun, fantastic year of learning and achievement!
