1st Grade

Building Foundational Reading, Writing, Math, and Science Skills

1st grader practices reading aloud

Calvert Learning’s accredited 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.
  • Build a stronger foundation in math skills and concepts using research-based math methods.
  • 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 Learning provides an engaging experience for 1st Graders to learn virtually

Created for schools to guide students in a virtual or blended learning setting, Calvert curriculum includes:

  • Best-of-class texts and online resources from top education publishers.
