Welcome to first grade! Our classroom has a structured environment, emphasizing responsibility and independence. Our morning daily devotions set the tone for our day by reminding us to trust God for strength to listen and do our best, so that we may bring glory to God. Our teaching is for mastery of the concepts presented, using a variety of methods including songs, visuals, poems, movement, games and board work, as well as workbooks.

We have a number of special days throughout the year including:
• November – Teddy Bear Picnic
• December – Christmas Around the World
• January – Winnie-the-Pooh Day
• February – Cowboy Day
• March – Dr. Seuss Week
• April – First Grade Circus
• May – Beach Day
