Our accredited 1st Grade homeschool curriculum continues to build on and add to skills your child learned in Kindergarten. Over the course of the year, you’ll see your child develop into an increasingly independent reader, writer, and critical thinker.
Using our detailed Lesson Manuals, you’ll guide your child as he/she:
Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.
Our complete homeschool curriculum includes everything you need to successfully educate your child at home:
To help you meet your state’s homeschooling reporting requirements, our Lesson Manuals detail how each unit and lesson aligns with common national and state standards. Our Calvert Teaching Navigator enables you to track attendance and progress.
The complete 1st Grade curriculum is available in our traditional combined print/online format (Traditional) or in our new, more affordable digital-only format (Digital). With our Traditional format, you’ll receive printed textbooks, workbooks, and kits as well as access to digital activities and materials. With our Digital format, you’ll receive the same quality texts and materials via e-textbooks and digital downloads.
Students gain independence in reading, learn more sight words, and become more adept at distinguishing vowel sounds. They write a narrative about their favorite day and create a persuasive poster about their favorite treat.
Students continue learning addition and subtraction—now with two digit numbers. They explore measurement, charts, graphs, time, money, and solid shapes. Students learn concepts by writing the biography of a number and creating a 3D cake design.
First graders investigate, analyze and interpret data, construct explanations and design solutions to demonstrate grade-level proficiency. Students learn to predict movement pattern of objects in the sky and then compare the sky where they live to that of students around the world.
This course introduces beginning economics and good citizenship. By interviewing a family member, students come to understand how our country has changed over time. They learn about the many uses of maps by making a “Personal Atlas to My Life.”
Young learners focus on ways to be more active. Topics of study include exercise safety, nutrition, and the values of cooperation and teamwork. Students learn age-appropriate motor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills.
First graders develop a basic understanding of the aspects of health. Topics of study include personal safety, nutrition, communication, disease prevention, basic anatomy, and physiology.
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
