Building Foundational Reading, Writing, Math, and Science Skills

Calvert’s 1st Grade curriculum continues to build on and add to skills students learned in Kindergarten. Over the course of the year, students will develop into increasingly independent readers, writers, and critical thinkers.

Using our detailed Lessons, students will be guided as they:

➤ Develop a fuller range of phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and fluency skills.

➤ Express ideas in their own words through projects and writing opportunities woven throughout the curriculum.

➤ See our country’s past come alive with read-aloud narratives about well-known explorers, political figures, inventors, and leaders in American life.

➤ Investigate how light helps us see and sound travels over distance.

Calvert’s curriculum is available in a Digital + Print Experience or Digital Experience. With the Digital + Print Experience, students will have access to online lessons with multimedia, interactive activities and assessments IN ADDITION to printed textbooks, workbooks and reading materials that complement learning. With our Digital Experience, students have access to the same texts and materials via e-textbooks and digital downloads.
