Our daughter has been bringing home lists of the 1st Grade skills that she needs to work on over the course of the year.
I thought it might be helpful to write down what's expected of her this year so I can always have a quick guide. Plus, I'm making an effort this year to not save every single scrap of paper the kids bring home.
Now that all three of them are in school, the papers pile up quickly. It's nice to have a virtual filing cabinet.
For those of you with children that are nervous like ours, it might be nice for you to sit down with them and take a look at what they can expect to learn in the 1st Grade.
I'll be adding to this list as the teacher sends home more skills that we need to work on. I'm also going to see if I can dig up my son's old 1st grade skills list. I told you I used to save every scrap of paper.
Over the 1st quarter of school, we'll be working on these skill sets. The links below will take you to worksheets and activities that will help your child better understand each concept:
We're starting off the quarter by working on these things:
I'll be adding more to this list as the teacher sends home new things
to work on, so be sure to check back for new topics.
I've also created a skills checklist from the ones that the teacher sends home each quarter. It will give you a nice idea not only of what kind of things to expect in 1st grade, but when you can expect your child to start working on them.
