We are setting goals in first grade!

Reading

Our Kindergarten students leave K reading aroung a Level 5-6 or higher.  We want our 1st grade students to begin 1st grade around a level 5-6.  Students are expected to leave first grade on a 16 reading level.  We want read with good phrasing and good comprehension.  We want the students to develop a love for reading.  We want them to understand that they are reading for a purpose.   All students will develop at different rates.  I will work with them on their instructional reading level to accelerate their learning.

Writing

We want our first graders to become independent writers.  They are learning mechanics, grammar, and how to write a focused story.  We teach our first graders the process of writing.  We plan, write, revise, edit, and publish our work throughout the year.  At the end of the year the students will show off a great story they wrote at an Author’s Tea event.

Math

We are learning a variety of concepts throughout the year.  We work on patterns, geometry, addition, subtraction, fractions, and many more concepts.  We use problem solving daily in all of our concepts.

Character Education

We are learning a new character trait each month.  We want to become good citizens in our classrooms, home, and community.
