First Grade is one of the best grades. It is such a fun grade. First Grade starts laying the foundation for so many math skills, and kids are learning how to read. It is the best feeling when it "clicks" for each first grader. Some take longer than others, but it is a magical feeling every single time.
First graders are sweet and love everything about school.
They are eager to learn new things. First grade is like watching a pan of popcorn heating up in oil. You keep feeding them the tools they need to read, and write... and one day they put it all together... and POP. It's amazing.
First Grade Students will be able to use headphones & microphones at school to help them listen and interact with their iPad. We have different apps that require a microphone. When each student has their own set of headphones they will be able to concentrate on their own ipad instead of hearing different students ipads in the room. They will be able to use them at home as well when we have remote learning taking place. First Grade students will be able to listen to lessons and engage in discussions while at home learning.
