First Grade Rocks!!!
First grade is all about expanding upon developing skills your child may have picked up in kindergarten. First graders will gain more control over their own body and impulses and will expand their understanding of the world around them. They become more independent, even beginning to earnestly read on their own.
First Grade Academics will focus on -- 1st grade reading, math, spelling, social studies, science, writing and so on -- and many 1st graders will begin to get more and increasingly difficult homework than they did in kindergarten.
