Grade 1 Program

 
Program Overview
Modules 1 - 9 of the primary program are designed for students enrolled in grade 1. The modules follow the  B.C. curriculum and all Ministry of Education guidelines. Each module contains 2 to 3 sets, each set contains five sections of lessons. You will find that a module generally takes 2 - 3 weeks to complete. Thus it is expected that most children will complete all 9 modules within a year. The modules, which cover a variety of topics, deal with all the subject areas being integrated into the activities and projects. There is a separate Math course included in the program with booklets to be sent in with the theme modules. The delivery and success of this program depend upon the amount and the effectiveness of parent/child interaction. This program is delivered by the parent/home facilitator and monitored by the VLN teacher. Reports will be issued 3 times a year.
