Welcome to first grade!
Our goal in first grade is to gain more independence while also becoming better readers and mathematicians. We will set high expectations and build positive relationships along the way. We will build strong relationships by not only getting to know our students but also understanding them as individuals and learners. This year, we will model positive social skills and how to solve academic problems. Students will learn how to treat themselves, their peers, and the world around them with love and respect. Students will learn how to use the best reading strategies to help them decode new words and enhance comprehension. Students will learn how to analyze, solve, and show evidence of math problems. Our students will become confident thinkers and compassionate beings.
