Our First Grades are a place of wonder and excitement! Students are encouraged to explore their world through guided inquiry and investigation.
Instruction is differentiated to ensure that student needs are met and they are able to grow at their own pace. Small group instruction is instrumental in making this possible. Guided Reading and Guided Math are daily practice.
We will ensure your child receives an individualized education based on his/her learning needs. We will be implementing the Primary Years Programme framework for a transdisciplanary approach to teaching, this means that we will teach all of the subjects together so we can dig deeper into learning. We will encourage students to be inquirers and investigate what interests them. Students will also start Spanish class once per week.
Students will learn to collaborate with one another and support each other in the learning process. Each will find success during their first grade year and will be encouraged to be lifelong learners!
