First Grade: Challenges

First Grade • If your child was in a half-day kindergarten program, you may find him or her to be very tired at the end of a full day of school.

• First-graders are often forgetful, leaving things at home and school. Help your child plan ahead as much as possible.

• Some children will still reverse certain letters and numbers when they write them. Don't draw a lot of attention to this, as they will begin to correct themselves soon.
