Learning: Developmentally first graders work on their social and academic growth. They work on number sense, understanding how numbers work together. They start learning about Virginia history by learning about Jamestown and the Powhatan Indians. Learning is structured to take place through centers, working to strengthen their ability to work independently. Along with learning centers, students work collaboratively and in whole groups as needed.
Trips: First Grade takes 3 field trips during the school year. One is to a nature center, one is to see a play and the third trip is to the planetarium.
Activities: 1st Grade have a performance in the winter with a focus on international influences to celebrate International Day.
