What You Can Expect From First Grade
In the first grade, students study the fundamentals of literacy—reading, writing, and literary response. By second grade, students become more fluent readers and writers, learning about complex story elements and how to write for a variety of purposes.
First graders study basic mathematical computations and begin to develop strong number sense. By second grade, students are able to solve multi-step mathematical reasoning problems. First grade scientists strengthen their observational skills of the scientific world and work together on engineering tasks. Second grade scientists continue creating their own engineering and scientific projects in a collaborative community of learners. We are very proud of how our first and second graders develop their abilities through our MSTEM innovative program.
