Welcome to First Grade!During first grade students grow tremendously. Those who love stories grow into self-extending readers. Those who tell stories become authors. Those who love to explore the world become keen mathematicians and scientists. The world expands to include a sense of history and of geography. First graders learn to be thoughtful members of a community of learners who are poised to become independent and inspired thinkers. We as first grade teachers are invested in helping each child reach the heights of their capabilities while providing a truly fantastic first grade experience.
