About First Grade

First grade is a very exciting year for our Bell-Graham students! Not only do our first graders work on strengthening their social and self-help skills, but they also work very hard developing their early literacy skills.

Reading, writing, talking about, and listening to books are a very important part of their daily routines. Children are also exposed to math literacy skills such as number sense, measurement, early calculations, etc. 

In the spring we study the growth of our bean stalks that were planted by first grade botanists.

Spending the whole day at school and eating lunch at school are exciting new adventures this year as well!
