First Grade at Liberty Baptist Christian School and Daycare consists of learning many new things. Each day begins with pledges to the Christian and American flags and a detailed Bible lesson. Math concepts include addition, subtraction, skip counting, beginning fractions, time, money and measurements. Phonics lessons include suffixes, prefixes, contractions and special sounds. Science lessons include the life cycle of frogs, butterflies, mantises and many other animals. We also spend time on a unit learning about plant life and its life cycle. History and geography lessons include colonial life, history of America and a road trip across American and the world. First graders begin learning cursive and read each day from A Beka readers provided in the curriculum.
