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.
