1st Grade News
2023-24 Grade Level Coordinator (First Grade)
Working toward Independence!
In First Grade, the students are becoming strong spellers and readers. They will develop fluency in Math facts, skip counting, and telling time to the hour and half hour. We explore and research topics like weather, light, sound, magnets, animals, plants, continents, landforms, and influential people. We use Fundations.
First graders read 20 minutes each night. First Graders are allowed to check out two books at a time from the Media Center.
Some of the special traditions we have in 1st grade include attending HIVE Rallies enjoying in-house field trips conducted by High-Touch High-Tech, and taking a trip to the Atlanta History Center.
Students should wear a Morris Brandon shirt on field trips.
