first grade is a developmentally based, and skills and concepts are
taught using a theme based, integrated curriculum whenever possible. A
variety of activities are provided to afford all children the
opportunity to feel successful. Students are encouraged to be active
participants in their own learning as they explore, question, take
risks, and seek out knowledge.
Much time is devoted to teaching
children to become independent and responsible members of a caring
community of learners. The social curriculum supports and makes possible
the successful implementation of the academic curriculum.
Class Activities and Special Programs
trips we have taken to support and enhance curriculum include: Harvard
University’s Peabody Museum, Natick Community Organic Farm, Wheelock
Family Theatre, Fresh Pond, and the Blue Hill Weather Observatory.
