First grade is so exciting! Most of the day is filled with language arts. We are thrilled to be reading using both our phonics and high-frequency sight words, and then taking what we have discovered to write sentences. In math, we learn using manipulatives and real life problems. Social Studies is where we explore how to be a good citizen, then learn about and celebrate our holidays. The main focus on science this year is animals. During religion class, we discuss ways to share God's love with others.
