Welcome Room 19!
I'm very excited to start the new year with a new group of first graders.
Our Special Class Schedule
Cycle Day 1 - Music
Cycle Day 2 - Art
Cycle Day 3 - Library
Cycle Day 4 - Computer
Cycle Day 5 - Phys. Ed.Our CurriculumLanguage Arts: This year we will be starting a new language arts program called, "Benchmark Advance". Our reading curriculum combines whole group and small group instruction, using a variety of materials. 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. (We'll send info and materials home to help with this!) 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: We will complete three units in first grade. These units focus on life science, physical science, and Earth and Space. Each one provides exciting lessons and hands-on experiments.Social Studies: First grade will learn about a variety of topics, such as our community, our national history, other countries and cultures, maps, and more!Health: We will cover many topics such as nutrition, dental health, wellness, community health workers, and much more.
