First Grade

First Grade

We love to celebrate our developing reading and writing skills.  In the fall, we hold a poetry coffeehouse where students share their poems with classmates and parents.  Springtime features special Readers’ Theater performances of stories from the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel.  We use our listening, speaking, and writing skills to communicate in letters, writing pieces, and even in our very own books.

Our students’ inquiry skills are emphasized in our science, social studies, and math curriculums.  Hands- on activities lead to more questions and discoveries as we explore topics such as communities, rocks and minerals, space, and energy.

First graders supplement their classroom learning with field trips to the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach and the Lyric Theater in Stuart.
