1st Grade

Welcome to first grade at the Boone Community School District.  First graders attend either Page or Lincoln Elementary Schools.  We utilize a balanced literacy approach, which includes:  phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary.  Our goal is for our students to become successful and motivated readers and writers

In math children are provided hands on activities that support concept development in the areas of number sense, basic operations and application of math concepts in the world around them.

We support an inquiry-based approach to science learning.  This allows students to explore and observe science topics including life cycles, animals, night and day and matter.

Along with a literature based culture study our social studies program helps students understand the expectations for positive citizenship by emphasizing the six pillars of character.
