First grade is one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! It is an exciting time, as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as, a year in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated.
So much happens in First Grade! Parents, as well as children, may have some apprehension about what will happen. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child´s self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will be our priority.
First graders are very curious and love the opportunity to explore topics of interest, but they also crave the security of having routines, structure, and plenty of time to do their best work. During the first few weeks of school, students practice the necessary routines that will help them succeed throughout the year. Establishing the expectations is worthwhile work. First graders who know what to do and how to do it can be as busy and productive as they love to be. During this time, we will also assess student´s reading, writing and math abilities.
We hope to see you during out annual Open House which will take place September 15th. We will be explaining classroom procedures, expectations, curriculum and other additional information. We are truly looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Together we can make First Grade a wonderful learning experience!
