First 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.” They are introduced to journal writing to expand their writing skills. “If you think it, you can write it.” 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 for both that provide hands-on learning, Bible instruction includes historical biblical history, and applying what that means. 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.
