  • Welcome to 1st GradeFIRST GRADE PROGRAM AT JOYLAND PRESCHOOL
    1st Grade Program
    Learning to read and write is the central task of first graders. Children start the year at varying stages of reading and each works hard to advance. A balanced literacy approach includes explicit instruction in decoding and phonics coupled with a rich assortment of books at appropriate levels. Children read extensively at their independent level and receive support at their instructional level. Writing, editing, and publishing occur daily, supported by Writing Workshop and mini-lessons on strategies and writing conventions. Math is taught with extensive use of hands-on materials, reinforced through games and problem-solving activities, based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards. "Same and Different" integrates Social Studies. Science, technology, Spanish, music, art, and physical education round out the first grade program.
    Journal Writing
    • Shared and Interactive Writing: Students participate by adding ideas, problem solving and helping the teacher write.

    • Read-A-Loud: Teacher reads to the students. Listening to and discussing stories helps in developing a child’s speaking vocabulary and gives the students opportunities to listen and enjoy different types of literature.

    • Shared Reading: Students participate in reading by sharing ideas, reading strategies and problem solving. The teacher guides the students through these lessons.

    • Guided Reading: Students are responsible for reading with little support from the teacher. This is an opportunity for the students to use the reading strategies that they have learned in shared reading. Each student reads a variety of books geared to meet his/her individual needs.

    • Independent Reading: The students are choosing books that are both interesting and the appropriate reading level. They are reading without support from the teacher. Our goal is that each student will become an independent reader!

    Socialization
    Providing students with social skills that will enable them to function productively in social and academic settings.
