1st Grade - Nelson Prairie

Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year! 

First grade is such an exciting time filled with learning and growing. I can't wait to watch all the changes your child will make this year. It is so rewarding to see all they can accomplish. I am looking forward to a wonderful year ahead! 



Parent Tips:







We will be using the Pearson ReadyGEN reading series which is an integrated literacy program that accelerates learning for students by presenting modeled reading with authentic text. Lessons include a Close Reading routine where students will learn how to approach complex texts by citing evidence from the text, exploring key ideas and details, and analyzing text structure.  The goal of ReadyGen is to build strong readers and writers through a lesson structure that develops an understanding of big ideas in social studies and science concepts through conceptually coherent text sets. 


Our math program is called Every Day Math.  Students will be studying number sense, addition and subtraction strategies to help master facts through 20, place value, measurement, time, interpreting data, and shapes.  Throughout the year, you will receive family letters to keep you informed of the mathematical content that your child will be studying in each unit.  Each letter includes a vocabulary list, suggested Do-Anytime Activities for you and your child, and an answer guide to selected Home Link (homework) activities. Home Links will come home at the end of every lesson. They are a great way to review with your child what was taught during math that day.  All Home Links also have a family note to explain any new math concepts. No home links on Fridays or on days we take math assessments.
