Welcome to first and second grade at Greeley Elementary. You will find this school is truly a “hidden gold mine”.
We are having a great start to our school year. The students are getting into a good routine and working hard.
This quarter in Language Arts we are focusing on phonics, reading fluently, and writing skills. We will learn about the Main Idea, developing vocabulary, and sight words. Many other skills per grade level will be targeted.
In Math, first grade is learning number order, patterns, addition and subtraction facts. Second grade is targeting place value, skip counting, as well as number order.
We are learning a lot in Science including scientific investigation, water, weather, and matter.
In Social Studies we are focusing on citizenship, history, time and mapping skills.
So first and second graders are very busy, looking forward to the season of Fall, and writing about it. We’ll also be making clay pumpkins and painting them in Art. Cooler weather will definitely be welcomed!
