Welcome to Volma Overton Elementary
1st Grade 2019/20
It is very exciting to have your child in our First Grade classrooms.
We look forward to working with you to make this a successful and exciting school year for our scholars.
We have set high academic goals for our scholars.
What's FUN in Grade One?
Overton 1st grade class will be learning many new skills in literacy, math, science, and social studies.
You can help your scholar meet these goals.
We will achieve this growth.
Scholars will be assessed on their phonemic awareness skills, ability to decode words and their comprehension skills. To insure these concepts are a solid understanding for our scholars they will be expected to tell all the events in the stories they read before they are allowed to move up to the next reading level.
At home: After reading with your child at home, it is good practice to ask them to retell the story in their own words with details.
This is a pivotal year for skills to come together for each scholar to become more developed as a learner.
