First Grade Curriculum

Develop Independent Reading and Writing Skills

1st Grade Homeschool Curriculum

The joy of our First Grade Homeschool Curriculum is watching your child develop into an independent reader and writer. Through activities that develop a full range of phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency skills, you will help your child build on the printing skills learned in Kindergarten and begin to use our distinctive Calvert script, preparing him or her to express ideas in his or her own words.

Our formal Spelling program overlaps with the phonics instruction in the Reading course.

Math and Technology

Calvert is now offering two choices for Math: Our classic Calvert Math will include an introduction to adding and subtracting fractions. In Math in Focus, students are introduced to the terms and symbols for greater than, less than, and equal to.

In the technology courses, your child will learn word processing, computer navigation, graphics skills, and visual mapping basics.

The Science program includes the study of living things, our earth, weather, matter, motion, and energy.

Introduction to Social Studies

Your child’s first Social Studies classes explore original read-aloud narratives that include biographies of well-known explorers, political figures, inventors, and leaders in American life.
