First Grade

Welcome to First Grade!

First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. During first grade, your child will learn how to read, write stories, add, subtract, and do so much more!  We hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and we hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.

So much happens in first grade! Because of this, the year will be full of important transitions. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority at Anderson Elementary.
