First grade is an amazing year! Students grow in wisdom, strength, and stature, just like Jesus did as he was growing up. They participate in experiences that help them to become independent learners and members of their community. First graders now have to use the social skills they developed in preschool and kindergarten in more mature ways. They start to use their God given talents in amazing ways. God enables this age group of children to develop the ability to understand the love of reading by themselves, the wonder and order of mathematics and the gift of God's love for them.
First grade students love learning about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We start each day with devotions and end each day with stories from the Bible. First grade students participate in chapel by using their own hymnals, memorizing and reading liturgy and singing hymns of praise weekly. Students write about their faith during daily religion lessons. They also recite memory work that apply to lessons three times a week.
