Mr.MacDougall's First Grade Class
Mission Statement: Hartford Central School, a community of educators, students, parents and friends, dedicates itself to developing citizens who are productive and compassionate, and who, through their creativity and responsibility, will be assets to the greater community.
Supporting your child at home and reinforcing the skills and concepts taught in the classroom is an essential part of your child's development and success in the classroom. The ReadyGen ELA program will expose students to rich, authentic text that will engage them intellectually. Students will be encouraged to think hard, dig deep and cite text base evidence in their reading. The program is designed to help students understand the inter-dependency between reading and writing and begin to use it to become lifelong learners and communicators.
In math, students will continue to expand upon the number concepts learned in kindergarten. Using the MyMath program, students will build fluency in math addition and subtraction facts, use a variety of problem solving approaches to solve math stories and word problems, be introduced to various types of measurement, practice graphing and work in geometry.
"The best thing you can give your kids is your time."
