Welcome to First Grade! We are a class of 21, learning and growing every day. Each day presents new challenges and new opportunities to succeed. It is going to be a GREAT year!
Our Goals To give students the academic and social skills needed to progress to second grade and beyond. To provide a supportive, safe and fun classroom environment. To work together to help each child reach their full potential.
Developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project Based on research about how children learn and develop mathematical power Provides the broad mathematical background needed in the 21st century
In Everyday Math, you can expect: A problem-solving approach based on everyday situations An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly Frequent practice of basic skills, often through games Lessons based on activities and discussion, not a textbook Mathematical content that goes beyond basic arithmetic
Parental Involvement Use Everyday Math Online to play online math games Classroom Volunteering during Games Days or Explorations Days (parents will be given advance notice of these special days and will be asked to sign in at the office before entering a classroom). Parent Letters Assist with Home Links and Study Links Play games at home Practice facts Read math literature books

Whole Group Instruction Whole-group instruction introduces tested skills and lets teachers identify areas of students weakness. It is scaffolded, progressing from easier to more complex content.
Small Group Instruction All students receive quality instruction during whole-class participation. But, because not all students are on the same level at the same time, Treasures also provides differentiation options for every tested skill and strategy—small-group instructional options for students at varying skill levels.
Independent Reading Homework Students will select text on their just right reading level. Texts may be a variety of genres from fiction to non fiction, poetry, newspapers, magazines, etc. Students will be provided with a process to record responses to their reading. This may in the form of read and respond forms, reading journals, etc. The homework will highlight a targeted skill connected to an identified weekly reading standard.
