Numbers and Place Value is a topic in math. Identifying and working with story problems, identifying and extending patterns, and two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures are focused on also. First graders will work with parts of a whole, time, money, and measurement.
Social Studies Curriculum
Students will use the scientific inquiry process fo develop, plan, and conduct investigations while using scientific tools, gather information, construct valid conclusions, and communicate results. Students will study living and nonliving systems and changes that occur within systems.
Students will be going to our computer lab once a week. They will work on skills using the Easy Tech program which is part of our computer program and apply those skills throughout the curriculum also. They will learn computer basics, keyboarding, graphics, word processing, and more!
We participate in the "Success For All" Reading program at Lackland. Students will learn decoding skills, reading fluency (speed, automaticity, smoothness, and expression), comprehension strategies, vocabulary development, critical analysis, and literature appreciation. Oral and written language will be reinforced through the completion of Treasure Hunt comprehension questions, creating Meaningful Sentences, Adventures in Writing, story tests, Team Talks (discussion of story parts), and Book Clubs.
Comprehension strategies include clarification, summarization, questioning, and prediction.
Specific skills are geared for the appropriate reading level.
By the end of the first grade school year, students should be able to fluently read at least 60 words per minute.
