First Grade Expectations
This year we will focus on phonics strategies to read and spell using CKLA (Core Knowledge Language Arts). We will learn comprehension strategies and vocabulary to become better readers and thinkers using CKLA Listening and Learning. We will learn about various Fables and Folktales, The Human Body, Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, Space, and Animals and their habitats.
In math, we will learn how to add and subtract 2 digit numbers, count and write numbers past 120, tell time, and problem solve. And we will write, a lot, every chance we get, about everything we are learning.
Thank you, in advance, for your trust and assistance in making your child's first grade year a success. I believe ALL children can and will achieve. I cannot wait to get to know the wonderful mind of your child!
