Rhodes School District 84.5

First Grade

First grade at Rhodes involves busy classrooms full of exploring and learning. Our focus is to introduce many of the reading and math skills that will help our students to be successful learners. We utilize Ready Gen Literacy Program as our reading curriculum, Lucy Calkins' Units of Study as our writing curriculum, and Go Math for our math curriculum. Science and Social Studies are important curricular areas as well.

All skills taught can be found with our online curriculum maps. First grade students are exposed to and use technology both in our classrooms and in computer class. Fine arts instruction is given through weekly music, art, and language classes as well as having gym four days a week. Extra services include a bilingual classroom, an inclusion classroom, ELL and ESL services, Title One, enrichment, and small group or one-on-one instruction as needed.

Teachers can be contacted via email. Please visit our Staff Connection to contact your child's teacher.
