Here are some highlights of the 1st Grade year:
In Social Studies we discuss local citizenship, beginning economics, early American history, what makes up different cultures, and geography concepts.
In science we will cover plants, animals, air, and weather.
We begin to emphasize the writing process with narratives, informatives, opinion pieces, and how-to essays.
We read historical fiction on the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, and the Pony Express. We also read some early readers including Little Bear, Frog and Toad, Owl at Home, a variety of informatives on animals, Nate the Great, and Magic Tree House.
