Peyton Elementary First Grade

Peyton Elementary’s first grade classes are small, less than 20 per classroom.  The students continue to use the Spalding’ Writing Road to Reading program to increase their reading and writing skills learned in Kindergarten.   Students also continue improving their Math skills through Math Rockets and the Envision Math program.


To help increase the reading level of students, each student has a SmartyAnts account.  Please allow your child time to read and learn on this valuable website.

Scholastic Reading Club

Our class participates in the Scholastic Reading Club.  Every book you buy earns FREE books for our classroom library.  Reading Club flyers are sent home to help you choose books.  Order online (our one-time activation code is MKQH7) or return the order form and payment to your teacher.   All book orders are shipped to our classroom.  Thanks for helping us read!
