First Grade

First Grade is an exciting year! The first grade classroom is a busy child centered learning environment. Learning is accomplished through cooperative groups, whole group lessons, small groups and individual conferences. Interactions, sharing, modeling and cooperation enhance the atmosphere in classrooms that promote warm, friendly and safe places for children to learn at their own level and feel great about themselves.

Our core reading program is StoryTown published by Harcourt. There are 90 minutes of reading instruction each day and each of the 5 essential areas of reading are covered: phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary development. Many of the lessons are whole class instruction with small group support.

The Go Math curriculum for First Grade follows the common core standards and is focused around mastery of addition facts using eleven specific strategies. Throughout the year, students will build an understanding of whole number relationships, place value, linear measurement (measurement with rulers, paperclips, links) and compose/decompose geometric shapes such as forming a rocket ship by using a variety of shapes.

In First Grade the curriculum is using an inquiry- based program called FOSS or Focus on Science Systems. The curriculum consists of three units: Insects, Air & Weather, Balance & Motion. Within each of these units students will participate in hands-on learning investigations and discussions that incorporate science vocabulary.

The focus of our Social Studies curriculum is family, all about me, holidays and mapping (our town, The United States, continents, oceans and directional words).
