In many ways, 1st grade is a year of important transitions — children leave behind much of the play of preschool and dive into developing deeper academic skills.
First graders progress from having beginner reading and writing skills to becoming beginning readers and writers, as they not only read and write more often, but with greater comprehension and ability, too.
In addition, children are taught the basic fundamentals of Math which includes geometry, numbers & numeration and basic operations.
Although, some of these subjects may have been introduced at preschool but they will all be taught at a higher difficulty as first graders
In 1st grade, there is also a change in the classroom structure from that of preschool and kindergarten. The 1st grade classroom is usually organized more like a traditional elementary school classroom. They are also introduced to the basics of Social Studies, Geography and Science. The subject of Science is taught to them in an interactive manner that enables free questioning and comprehensive understanding of the world around them.
The transition to more extensive learning, with less play time and more “sitting time,” is a very significant one. Keep in mind that your child will need to adjust to this new learning environment. It is important to check with your child’s teacher on your child’s progress and work together to develop strategies if your child is having trouble adjusting, especially at the beginning of the year. At home, give your child time to rest after school or allow him to play and exert his energy in the morning before school. Most importantly, give your child time to adjust. Like any person dealing with change, taking the time to get used to a new environment is crucial. The same applies to skill development. Not all 1st graders become readers and writers overnight; different children learn at different paces, especially in 1st grade when there are many changes and new skills to acquire.
