1st Grade

Welcome to 1st Grade!

First grade is a big transition year!  Lots of teeth are lost, students grow in inches and in knowledge, and their reading skills improve dramatically!  A lot of “firsts” in first grade!

We start each day with our Bible Time.  Here we meet Jesus through our Bible stories, praise and worship, prayer requests and Bible memorization.

Throughout the year, students will have fun learning in the classroom and outside the classroom. 

Inside the classroom, students learn math, phonics, language, writing, history, science and art using the ABecka curriculum.  First graders also enjoy PE, music, technology, Spanish and library with specialists each week.  As first graders, they will get to experience different types of journaling, weekly shown-n- tells, and so many more fun activities.


The First Graders will experience field trips such as:

We rotate year to year, and usually take two off campus field trips each year.
