First Grade

Sue Seipel

Welcome to First Grade!

The first graders will be involved in a language-rich curriculum that focuses on stories, phonemic awareness, spelling and the 6-traits of writing. The students’ imaginations will be sparked through fairy tales, non-fiction/fiction stories and traditional rhymes as they engage in the necessary skills and confidence to read independently on a daily basis.

The students will participate in a variety of hands-on activities and study trips while integrating thematic units in religion, social studies, science, and math concepts.

The first grade curriculum will encourage the students to be active lifelong learners, while enhancing their inquisitive minds.
