Meet Our 1st Grade Team

Our students grow so much in 1st Grade!

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.

Wyoming Reads Field Trip

Our First Graders attend the annual Wyoming Reads celebration at the Natrona County Library each May. During this celebration of literacy, all Natrona County first graders receive a hardback book of their choice, courtesy of the Sue Jorgensen Library Foundation. Read more about this event at
