Welcome to the First Grade Room of Mrs. Kyes

In first grade we explore many new topics using a hands-on approach to learning. Students are given the opportunity to engage in reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities throughout the school day. Math concepts are learned through whole and small group lessons, games, explorations, and concrete manipulatives. Field trips, projects, experiments, computer exploration, and audio-visual materials support learning in all the curriculum areas including social studies and science. There are also opportunities for children to make friends and learn through peer interaction. I am really looking forward to being your child’s teacher this year!
