First Grade is an exciting year for students. In Language Arts, we focus on phonics, reading, and writing complex sentences. In Math, we use manipulatives and strategies to add and subtract to 20, in addition to exploring time, money, and geometry. Social Studies focuses on our community and the world around us. Science leads us through animals and their habitats, scientists and scientific method, plants, and more! In Religion, First Graders develop an understanding of their relationship with God and their participation in Mass. First graders also get hands on experience and an outlet for expression in Art.
