First Grade


Our first graders at Pine Shadows are excited about this new school year! The children are provided opportunities to explore their learning through reading, writing, math, science and social studies.  The students apply their new learning to make connections.  They demonstrate their knowledge through the use of journals, partner sharing and working together as a group, as well as some projects.

Even after 13 years of teaching, I still love the everyday challenges that teaching brings. Although I’ve taught Kindergarten and third grade, first grade is by far my favorite. I love watching the progression and excitement as children learn how to read.
