According to our 1st Grade Teacher, Mrs. Schniederjan – 1st Graders are the best!
In first grade at Dalhart Christian Academy, reading is a top priority. Students work hard through the year to further their reading progression, in phonemic awareness, fluency, and comprehension. Reading is the cornerstone for a successful academic life. “If you can read, you can do anything.”
Students are introduced to journal writing to expand their writing skills. The Math curriculum is taught to increase computation and reasoning skills, as well as problem solving techniques. History and Science knowledge is expanded through activities that provide hands-on learning. Bible instruction includes biblical history and application of what that means in daily life.
Each first grader is a gift: special, unique and valuable. The students are encouraged daily to focus on embracing the preciousness of others by showing the characteristics of Jesus.
