First Grade

By first grade, all children are reading beautifully!  Given the small class size, each child is encouraged to read independently at their own comfort level, then, working with their teacher, their skills are honed and they have the confidence to meet higher challenges.  In their math program, the students are adding and subtracting two and three digits easily.  They continue to work with money, time and graphing as well as solid geometry.  The geography of the  world is introduced early in the school year as students follow Christopher Columbus’ route as he travels to the New World.


What Our Parents are Saying
My favorite thing I learned at Tarleton was French and Spanish.  If I hadn’t learned French at Tarleton, I would never have known about French because they don’t teach French yet at my school.
