What your child is learning

I know another language! Learning French is exciting and fun in Grade 1. Your child will listen as French stories are read, and they will read short stories about familiar events and experiences. They will use French words correctly when they speak, build short sentences to convey a meaningful message and write short stories based on their own imagination. For more about Grade 1 French Language Arts, refer to the program of studies.

How your child is assessed

Your child’s learning is assessed using a variety of tools and strategies within the classroom. Ask your child’s teacher what methods they are using. The different assessment methods tell you and your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths, the areas in which they might grow and how well your child is doing throughout the course. Your child’s teacher can then change or refine their teaching plans to ensure that learning activities better meet the needs of your child. At the end of the course, your child is assessed and their achievement is reported so that you know if they have achieved the expected learning outcomes for their grade.

Resources to help your child

A variety of digital and print resources, developed by publishers, Alberta Education or Alberta teachers, are available to help students learn. Teachers may select, and bring into the classroom, numerous innovative and creative resources to create rich learning experiences for your child.
