1st Grade

First Grade continues the academic and social journey through an exploration of identity and community.

Our days are filled with routines, songs and games that encourage growth and build confidence.  We read about and befriend the Wood Elves who mysteriously share our classroom space; study ants (How do they work as a group?); learn about ourselves (What makes me, me?); and research dinosaurs (How do I become an expert on a topic?). Many of us come into reading or stretch our ability to think about what we have read. We learn about different ways to combine numbers and then take them apart again. And, we write about our lives, learning, and the world around us.
