First Grade

Academic Focus

In first grade our primary focus is literacy.  The first grade teachers engage children in many differentiated activities to ensure all students are working at their level.  Reading Recovery services are provided by Miss Tia to help provide reciprocity between reading and writing.  Students are afforded many hands-on activities in the Everyday Math program as well as Science and Social Studies.
