First Grade Curriculum



Language Arts:

Our Language Arts instruction is done through a balanced literacy approach. We use various strategies and techniques to meet all of the needs of our diverse learners. Some of the many ways we teach are:

  • Shared Reading and Writing
  • Modeling
  • Words Their Way for spelling
  • Small group instruction
  • Whole group instruction
  • Activeboard, Flipcharts, and Active votes
  • Itouches and Netbooks
  • Literacy Workstations
  • Writer's Workshop

  • Independent Reading



We study many concepts throughout the year in math. We use technology (such as Netbooks, Itouches, Activeboards, etc) to reinforce the concepts we are teaching. We also use Singapore Math to teach many of the concepts. We also utilize both whole group and small group instruction in order to ensure the most success for our students.
