Goals of the First Grade Full Curriculum: 

A complete review of previously learned phonics skills is important at the first grade level. Covenant Home uses MCP Phonics B,moving into the remaining phonics rules and some basics of grammar at the end of the year.Spelling is introduced at this level. Lessons are arranged phonetically. The use of good literature enables the focus to move from decoding(phonics) to comprehension; later, drawing meaning from context, classification, and drawing conclusions.Independent reading is encouraged as students are taught to write book reports through the use of simple forms.

Scripture memory and a teacher-directed, Old Testament study of Creation through Saul are covered in Bible, while history from Early American Trades emphasizes inventors and those who built our nation. The teaching ideas found in the excellent MCP Math books allow for use of manipulatives. Students memorize sums through 18 and subtract from 10 or less. The focus of science is the solar system in which we live.
