Welcome to 1st grade! First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning! This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. During first grade, your child will learn how to read, write stories, add, subtract, and so much more that will expand their world. We hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.
So much happens in First Grade! It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress and acquire skills at different rates. Maintaining each child's confidence and building a secure foundation for future growth is our priority. Here are some ways you can help:
- Celebrate your child's success no matter how small it may seem. This will keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work!
- Read to and with your child everyday! The more your child is exposed to language, the easier it will be for him/her to incorporate new skills in reading and writing in the classroom.
- Practice addition and subtraction math facts everyday! Discuss how math is used in everyday life. Have your child help count money. Discuss time and measurement whenever possible.
We look forward to teaching your child and working with you to help your child achieve their fullest potential. Please don’t hesitate to contact us! Visit our website and/or email us by clicking on our names below.
