First graders enter the number grades with the foundational skills they need to become great readers and mathematicians. Kids in the first grade will expand upon their basic knowledge to learn about spelling conventions, geometry, money, and sentence structure. As your child feels more comfortable with the basics of reading and writing in the first grade, he'll be able to be more expressive with language arts projects. Math problems are more interesting in this grade, as students move past counting and basic skills to focus on word problems and real-life applications for math. Our selection of teacher-approved resources will help your first graders learn math and reading in a way that's engaging and age appropriate.
