Welcome First Graders!
The first grade year is one in which your student will grow in reading fluency and accuracy. While kindergarten introduced basic concepts in reading, first grade will expand on those concepts and your child will take some big steps to becoming an independent and confident reader.
The first grade curriculum is specifically designed to give the 1st grader a thorough and comprehensive education. The components will also guide the student through the California State Standards and help transition them into 2nd grade by the end of the year.
Language Arts: We have added a new writing component to the 1st grade curriculum. The book Daily 6-Trait Writing is a daily writing practice workbook to teach and encourage early writing skills.
Math: In addition to the Language Arts, we have also added a package of math manipulatives to the McGraw-Hill Math program. The kit contains a clock, unifix cubes for measuring, a ruler, pattern blocks and game pieces that are designed for use with the lessons presented in the text.
