  • Please be sure your child wears appropriate clothing and shoes for recess and especially PE.

What we are Learning this Semester

Math - We are exploring two-digit numbers by using tens and ones!  We’re learning all about how to represent numbers by using groups of tens and ones. We will also be exploring 2D and 3D shapes for Geometry.

Reading - We love learning lessons with our first grade characters!  From Amelia Bedelia to Pete the Cat, there are so many problems and solutions our favorite characters learn about.  You can help your student practice talking about character’s lessons by having them identify the problem in their story and pointing out how the character solves their problem.

Writing - We are creating our own realistic fiction stories!  Students are crafting their own stories by thinking of a character, a setting, and a problem to solve.

Science - We are using our eyes and ears to learn all about light and sound, both in our own classrooms and with Mrs. Macalino in the Science Lab.

Social Studies:  Students will learn about the national symbols that are unique to our country.  Students will learn about national symbols and why they are unique to our country and that a symbol is something that stands for, or represents, something else.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Welcome to First Grade! We are very excited to make this a positive, fun and educational year for your child. A typical day in first grade consists of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. It may also include Art, Music, Library, Technology and Physical Education. Our curriculum has an emphasis on building reading and writing skills and strategies with the New York Reading and Writing Project. Wherever possible we attempt to use a thematic approach to integrate the skills in these areas.  Curriculum content is guided by the Common Core State Standards and our district benchmarks for each subject area.  

Welcome to First Grade!!!

Curriculum

California State Standard

 

The FAIR Act

The California Education Code has been updated over time to make sure that the role and
contributions of members of underrepresented racial, ethnic and cultural groups to the economic,
political, and social development of California and the United States are included in history and
social studies lessons. The FAIR Education Act amends the Education Code by mandating
California schools to also include the contributions of people with disabilities and members of the
LGBT community in the curriculum.
