Welcome to the First Grade!
I attended St. Peter Claver School from first through eighth grade. I have been teaching here since our merge in 1986. These years have been very rewarding ones for me. It is great to be able to say that I love going to work! My daughter also attended CCA because of the quality education, values, morals and school community that exists at Christ Child. The staff, families and parishes together have created a unique environment.
I feel Christ Child Academy is the building block for spiritual growth and development for the future of the Catholic faith. I invite every parent to seriously consider sending your child to our school. I am blessed to be a part of it!
In first grade, students learn to follow directions and become active listeners. Writing skills are stressed using grade appropriate developmental spelling along with instructional spelling lists. In math, students learn through many hands on activities as well as problem solving, computation and drill. The students develop a strong focus on phonetic instruction and a variety of rich literature. Social Studies and Science include many fun and exciting units: Our Country, Oceans, Rain Forests, Life Cycles, Nocturnal Animals, and Farms just to name a few!
