Calvert’s comprehensive curriculum materials include everything you need for a full year of teaching.
The Joy of Reading and Writing in the 1st Grade
Calvert’s 1st Grade curriculum harnesses the joy parents feel watching their child develop into individual critical thinkers. Our engaging and challenging activities are designed to nurture a full range of phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and fluency skills. Calvert will help you guide your student through a distinctive and well-rounded curriculum and prepare him or her to express ideas in his or her own words.
Two different math options are available with our 1st Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students are introduced to addition and subtraction up to two digit numbers, learn simple fractions, find the distinction between solid and plane shapes, develop beginner skills with money, discover fact families, and problem solve with place value and telling time or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students compare and order sets of objects and numbers less than 100, create number bonds and fact families, measure length, area, weight and capacity with nonstandard units, and identify multiplication and division as operations involving equal units.
Additionally, you and your child will discover and explore social studies for the first time in the curriculum. With read- aloud narratives, your child can hear the biographies of well-known explorers, political figures, inventors, and leaders in American life.
The Tools You Need Plus Unlimited Support
Our comprehensive 1st Grade homeschool program includes everything you need to successfully educate your child at home: print textbooks, workbooks, reading books, maps, science and math kits, activity pages, tests, and more! Our print and online Lesson Manuals include complete daily lesson plans and step-by-step instructions.
All Calvert programs also include access to the Calvert Teaching Navigator, our innovative online resource that makes homeschooling with Calvert easier and more flexible than ever before. Plus, every enrollment includes free, unlimited Teacher Support from our highly trained and certified Education Counselors.
Lessons, activities, and online interactive learning tools are integrated with the curriculum, particularly Reading and Science.
We were scared to death of homeschooling our first grader last year. We had no idea what we were doing. Calvert made it so easy and rewarding. Plus it delivers an education that has no gaps in the curriculum. I would definitely recommend it for a first-timer.— Candace K. Calvert Mom
