First Grade is packed with important and exciting transitions as children begin to develop more academic skills. Building reading skills and introducing concrete building blocks of math is an essential part of a first grader's learning process and academic success.
In first grade, your child can also look forward to learning about animals, plants, weather, seasons, and more. Each classroom will “visit” another country and learn about their traditions and culture during World Tour Week. We will also take two exciting field trips, including a trip to the Indianapolis Zoo. First grade is full of hands-on learning experiences including STEM projects, building gingerbread houses, and more.
