First graders travel through the gospels and the Book of Acts, learning about the works and words of Christ, as well as the spread of the early church and the ministry of the Apostle Paul. Reading from A Child’s Story Bible, scripture, and other biblical fiction and nonfiction books, we build a timeline of biblical events covered in these books.
First graders love math for its active learning, which includes fast-paced games, flash cards, chants and songs. These kids love the thrill of finding answers to increasingly complex problems, racing their teacher and each other to come to the right solutions!
First grade math uses the Saxon 2 curriculum. Students learn time telling, adding and subtracting double digits through 100, multiplying 0-5, basic geometry and fractions, skip counting (by 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, and 25’s), finding the missing x factors, counting to 1000, and counting money.
