Our 1st grade provides a loving, caring environment for our children to thrive and develop in academic, social, emotional, and spiritual areas. This environment fosters a love of learning for life.
St. Paul 1st grade provides a balanced literacy program using Pat Cunningham's 4 blocks program. Through a variety of great literature(fiction and nonfiction), songs, poetry, and chants the children learn to read. Science and Social Studies are integrated into the curriculum. Various cooking activities are used to foster an enthusiasm for math, science, and reading activities.
The Harcourt Math program is used as well as numerous activities at the math center to help develop problem solving skills and independent learning.
The children are also able to gain confidence in their writing ability by participating in shared writing and various activities at the writing center.
