GCAS’s lively and engaging First Grade curriculum will help you guide your child toward solid reading and math skills while encouraging an active, inquisitive mind.
GCAS's curriculum is designed to be easy to use for the parent/teacher and the student. Assignments are clearly marked and explained in detail. A weekly planner, assignment checklist, and materials list for each lesson helps you plan your week in advance and budget your time and resources. (Families are encouraged to use our main lesson books to document their student’s work.) Comprehensive learning assessments are included at the end of each lesson to help you document your student’s progress, recognize your student’s strengths and areas where more support is needed, and track learning over time.
Literacy, Social studies, Math, Science Craft and Art skills are developed through a language-rich curriculum that focuses on stories, poems, and songs. Students progress through learning how to print upper- and lowercase letters to a study of word families and consonant blends. The imagination is sparked through fairy tales, nature stories, and traditional verses as your child develops the necessary skills and confidence to read independently.
We're so excited for you and your child's 1st grade year at GCAS. It'll be an experience that you will have you happy you chose GCAS.
