Our goal in First grade is to foster a love of learning in our students and to prepare them with the necessary skills to read and write.

In First grade our students will be learning the following skills:

  • Locate the main idea and details in a story.
  • Read at least 100 sight words.
  • Recall the sequence of events in oral and written stories.
  • Print words legibly.
  • Write words legibly in manuscript form.
  • Capitalize the first word in a sentence and use the period and question mark at the end of a sentence.
  • Recognize the singular and plural forms of nouns.
  • Count to 100 by one's, two's, five's, and ten's.
  • Write the numerals to 100.
  • Add and subtract numbers up to and from 10.
