Elementary G1 + G2


Grade1
is an exciting year where students transition from kindergarten to a more structured learning environment. In Grade 1, students continue to develop their foundational skills in reading, writing, and math. They learn to read simple texts, recognize basic sight words, and develop phonics skills.

Students begin to write sentences, express their ideas through written words, and practice proper letter formation and punctuation. In mathematics, they learn about numbers, addition, subtraction, shapes, and measurement using hands-on activities and visual aids. Science lessons may focus on topics such as plants, animals, weather, and basic scientific concepts. Social studies lessons introduce students to their community, families, and basic concepts of citizenship and cooperation. Physical education, art, music, and other subjects are also part of the curriculum to promote creativity, physical development, and well-rounded education. Grade 1 teachers often emphasize social and emotional development, teaching students how to work in groups, follow rules, and develop positive relationships with peers and adults.

Grade 2 builds upon the skills and knowledge acquired in Grade 1 and introduces more complex concepts. Reading skills are further developed, and students begin to comprehend longer texts, infer meaning, and read for information. Writing skills progress to include paragraph writing, basic grammar rules, and creative writing exercises. In mathematics, students learn multiplication, division, place value, money, time, and basic fractions. Science lessons expand to cover topics such as the human body, ecosystems, matter, and forces. Social studies lessons delve deeper into local and global communities, history, geography, and cultural diversity. Physical education, art, music, and other subjects continue to be part of the curriculum to promote physical fitness, creativity, and self-expression. Grade 2 teachers focus on fostering independence, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and collaborative learning.

Overall, Grade 1 and Grade 2 provide a solid foundation for elementary education, laying the groundwork for future academic and social development. The curriculum balances core subjects with opportunities for creativity, physical activity, and social interaction to support well-rounded growth in young students.
