Our first grade day here at Trinity begins and ends with Jesus. In our devotions, we sing and pray and share our faith with one another. During our Jesus Time we learn more about our Savior’s love and how we can be more like Jesus, our very best Friend.
graders spend much of our time becoming better readers. We learn many phonetic helps and other
reading tricks that help us grow into good readers who comprehend, enjoy, and
gather information successfully. We also practice spelling and writing words
that are used to write our own stories, biographies, letters,
In math, we practice putting numbers together and taking numbers away. We work hard to learn the basic facts. We measure, compare, and love to use very big numbers.
The first graders are privileged to create beautiful art with Mrs. Schroeder; to learn all about music with Miss Drees, to spend time creating in the computer lab, and to go to the library once a week to hear stories and check out books to take home.
Our time together in first grade helps us to grow as special children of our loving Shepherd Jesus and to develop the gifts He has given us.
graders at Trinity Lutheran School are continuing to grow in the wisdom
reading series we use, Open Court, is
very phonetic and inclusive. The
students begin cursive writing by mid-year, helping them feel very grown-up.
In math, the students review and drill on basic facts, do two-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping, and are exposed to time, money counting, fractions, graphing, and an introduction to multiplication.
Weekly themes are used to integrate language arts into relevant topics. This includes writer’s workshops and grammar skills.
Our day starts and ends with prayer, asking God’s blessings. We have bi-weekly memory verses and Bible stories to nurture our relationship with God. We take church attendance and strongly encourage our families to be active in the worship at their church.
Our goal is to allow the child the constant knowledge that he/she is a special creation of God and that He loves us very much.
