First Grade

  • Welcome to first grade!  We currently have two sections of first grade here at Hamline Elementary!  We use the Reader's and Writer's workshop models in the classrooms.

    Inquiry: We are ALWAYS wondering and asking questions in First Grade.

    Academic: We learn how to read, write and explore numbers up to 120!

    Responsive Classroom is used to build community with a focus on developing social skills to improve academics. We have a daily morning meeting to get to know each other through greetings, sharing and cooperative activities.

    Homework: There is no assigned homework. Students are encourage to read for at least 20 minutes and have conversations with families.
