1st Grade

1st grade is an incredible growth year for all the students at the JQS.  They not only grow physically and socially, but they also grow a tremendous amount academically.  The students enter the year as emerging readers, mathematicians, and writers.  They leave 1st grade as fluent readers, mathematicians who can add and subtract, and writers who have strong mechanics and grammar and the style and voice to write an interesting story or response.  They also become independent learners who possess the ability to function in the classroom on their own taking ownership of their learning.
