    First Grade is Beary Special!


    Welcome to first grade at Mary Purcell! 


         First grade promises to be a milestone year for your child that is full of friends, fun, and learning.  In reading, your child will experience a balanced literacy approach including phonics, phonemic awareness, guided reading, fluency and comprehension skills and strategies.  We are excited to start the year with our brand new Open Court curriculum.  Writing will take place in a workshop format.  We will be learning and practicing all the steps of the writing process.  Math instruction will blend computation practice and hands on opportunities to develop essential math concepts with a focus on problem solving.  We will explore the Liquids and Solids Foss kit during science.   You will be amazed at your child's growth this year!
