Welcome to First Grade !

We are ready to grow in First Grade!

We can’t wait to start the learning and the fun!

In Open Court Reading we will begin by reviewing all of the consonant and the short vowel sounds.  As we review we will learn the spelling of each sound.  As we master each spelling, we will begin blending the sounds into words. We will practice by reading our decodable books.                                Our big book theme “Let’s Read” will contain many interesting poems and stories, biography and art, all helping us to use our new skills as we explore literature.

In Math we will review our counting skills as well as learn our first set of addition facts. Our lessons will also include patterning, geometry, measurement, calendar, and mathematical reasoning.

In Social Studies we will learn about our culture. We will explore our families and neighbors, our schools and our country. We will talk about the rules and customs we share as a part of each community.

In Science we begin our Life Science Unit by learning about living and non living things.

We will enjoy going to Music, Art, Spanish,Computer and P.E. for more learning fun!

We are so excited to be in First grade!
