We are not here to learn English, but to have some fun using English as much as possible. Together, we build an environment that is safe and enjoyable for everyone in the class.
In first grade, we learn to count. We explore the concept of numbers with concrete objects and manipulate the number pairs. In second grade, we explore bigger numbers. We learn count to 200, and then to 1000. We also learn complex additions and subtractions.
Using letters they already encountered in their English textbook to reinforce numbers, number sense and computation skills.
Shapes and Telling Time
We observe and identify shapes in our daily lives. Different shapes have different sides. They can vary in length and in size.
It's time to celebrate our birthdays. We memorize the names of each months and days. We also explore the concept of "before" and "after."
Measurement and Data
We tally our birthday data and present graphic information for what we found.
