• All About Our Curriculum

    We are a bright group of First/second graders working diligently to meet the California Content Standards and working on the new Common Core Standards for first/second grade learners.
     
    We are working on our writing, reading, math, science, art, computers, p.e., and social studies.
     
    Some curriculum highlights include:
     
    Writing:
    We are learning about capitals, periods, question marks, commas, indenting, and how to write a paragraph. We are also practicing our neatest printing. Additionally, we are learning how to choose one topic and stay on that topic throughout our writing.
     
    Reading:
    We have started our reading series and we are beginning to focus on a small group reading and individualized reading lessons.
     
    Math:
    We are learning to count, read addition sentences and are learning the meanings of the words: addend, sum, and equals.
     
    Science:
    We will be learning that plants and animals meet their needs in different ways all, learning about weather, and liquids and solids.
     
    Social Studies:
    We are currently working on learning how to use maps and globes to find our place in this world. We will also be learning about family history, sources used to discover it and traditions.
     
    Art:
    This year we are lucky to have the Arts Attack program again. We have wonderful parent volunteers that are helping us with our art lessons and skills.  We are also studying classic artists and have become experts on Claude Monet so far!
     
    P.E.
    We are teaming with Mrs. Fossing and Ms. Gibson, Mrs. Velasco, Mrs. May and Mrs. Chadwick's classes and have been playing assorted games from the Sparks P.E. program and will continue to do this until the last week of school.
