FIRST GRADE: WOOD CLASS

First graders see themselves as learners acquiring important new skills. They build on earlier experiences, making connections and discussing ideas. Academic skills continue to develop, and first graders begin to be aware of their progress and the strategies they are using for learning.

At Berkwood Hedge the first grade classroom motto is "We learn to do by doing". Whether applied to reading, to writing, to math, to making friends, or to jumping rope, first graders are encouraged to be engaged, reflective, capable and flexible learners and friends.

First grade "WOODWORKERS" often study trees and birds. They lead the school in our "green" recycling efforts.
