The Wonderful World of Class 1


Dear Class 1 families,

The children have settled quickly into classroom routines and expectations. Friendships are forming and learning is being demonstrated by the children in our class. Our year promises to be full of fun, learning, laughter, and lots of adventures!

A great feature of our JMCC-SA website is our photo gallery. Our Class 1 web page will showcase and celebrate some of our wonderful learning. Please take some time to view our photo gallery.  Our class website will also feature our monthly newsletter.

Dear Families:

Welcome to Class 1! There is an exciting year awaiting, designed to promote and enhance your child’s growth and development. This year promises to be one filled with discovery and joy as your child works and plays in an environment that is warm, safe and challenging.

The structure of daily activities is carefully planned to encourage independence, self-confidence and group cooperation through large group, small group and one-on-one participation in a variety of hands-on, interactive experiences. The activities will incorporate instruction and skill reinforcement in literacy, mathematics, science and social studies, art, fine and gross motor skills, social/emotional skills and language development, both verbal and through assistive technology.

The focus of the curriculum is centered around theme units and related selections of literature. This is the core of our integrated learning and these units of study will be used to extend across, and connect all of our curriculum areas.  Learning will be real and learning will make sense!

We are looking forward to our working together to make this a most successful school year! Please feel free to contact us at school, should you have any questions and/or concerns regarding your child‘s school experience.


Yours Truly,

The Class 1 Team

What We Are Learning in Class 1


Creating Learning Environments

Class 1 will be spending time working in centre activities that relate to curriculum expectations. During centers your child will have a chance to learn both independently and with staff support.  This is a ‘play time’ that is structured around themes.  Some centers are play and some are academic.  The students will work on social skills and explore the world around them.  This means getting along with others, sharing, and interacting in small groups.  Centre time is when we observe social skills as a whole class and on an individual basis.  At this time, we also work on skills with your child one-on-one. It’s a very busy, but much needed time.
