First Grade Resources

First grade represents the first year of growth and improvement in schooling. Counting becomes addition and subtraction. Words become sentences. First-grade kids are introduced to more complicated social topics such as culture and scientific subjects like potential versus kinetic energy. The Learning Library’s first-grader resources are engaging and skills-based to help young students seamlessly transition into the next phase of their education.

Resources to Build on First Grade Foundations

As small scholars continue to grow in height, their brains grow as well. The Learning Library is an easy-to-navigate source for teachers and parents. The library of resources provides academic yet stimulating guided lessons, lesson plans, hands-on challenges and more that are created by ace educators.

First-grade students continue to build a strong educational foundation while being introduced to a wider variety of topics such as map reading and the anatomy of plants. In addition to old-school pen-and-paper school work, first-grade is a time students become more comfortable with computers. While many adults may have never had computer or typing courses in school, today students are introduced to computers and keyboards right off the bat. Games with captivating and colorful illustrations help first-graders learn how to use the spacebar, get familiar with key locations and begin to type words. Learning typing skills at a young age supports accuracy and speed as they grow.

Beyond the keyboard and traditional subjects, the resource library offers tools on mindfulness, mindful eating, self-awareness, and other self-improvement methods so kids can absorb more of the world around them and gain resilience and compassion.
