Your child will improve sight word vocabulary, decoding strategies, and comprehension skills this school year. A vital part of his/her learning is practicing and reading together at home. You can find more info about our reading programs on our district website and at www.eduplace.com. Also included in our Language Arts program is the development of writing skills. Your child will do a variety of writing each day. We will also work very hard to improve handwriting using the Handwriting Without Tears program.Math: Our school uses a program called "Go Math!". We will begin our year learning about place value concepts, and learning numbers to 120. Please watch for math updates in our family letters and monthly classroom newsletters.Science: Foss Science, our science program, provides us with three kits to teach in first grade. These kits are called: Sun and Moon, Solids and Liquids, and New Plants. Each kit provides exciting lessons and hands-on experiments.
