    First Grade  
    "But now I am six, I'm clever as clever. So I think I'll be six forever and ever."  A. A. Milne
    Welcome to the exciting world of First Grade! First Graders are naturally hungry for information. Their eagerness, curiosity, imagination, and drive are at an all time high. This allows for a great deal of knowledge to be constructed, resulting in significant development and growth. In First Grade, reading and writing begin to extend and enrich all other curricular areas. Autonomy is encouraged in an effort to promote greater independent risk-taking, problem solving, and learning.
    For a more in-depth look into our curriculum you can access information by visiting the District K-5 Curriculum page.  Once here, you can view each curriculum area and topics of concentration. 
    Additionally, you can find some other First Grade information on The First Grade Google Site, which will be evolving as the year unfolds.
