• Welcome to Mrs. McCarthy's First Grade!
     
    We are having a fantastic year!  The first graders have been busy learning about weather & seasons, space and technology, families and traditions and we are looking forward to our unit on matter.
     
    The children are also becoming great readers!  We are learning stategies to help us with "tricky" words, and we have been working hard on Word Study. As we learn and use new strategies for decoding words and comprehending text, our reading is gaining fluency! For extra practice with developing reading skills, check out the websites below.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     We love school!
     
     
                    
                                           
     
    We absolutely love our new Math Expressions program!  The children are becoming fluent with basic addition and subtraction facts!  Please continue to practice these facts at home to develop automaticity.
