Meet the Primary
Our Primary Level is comprised of our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. Come along as we visit each level, explore curriculum, and view a gallery of photos. Better yet, contact Mrs. Abbenhaus and visit our warm and lively classrooms.
The Kindergarten year is a year of forming an educational foundation. It is the first step in supporting your child through many years of school and beyond. The most wonderful factor in the learning experiences in kindergarten is that they are fun. You, as parents, should enjoy this period and share in the fun as you and your child expand his/her world. Kindergarteners are investigative. They want to know the how and why of things. Therefore, St. Alban Roe kindergarteners are exposed to age appropriate developmental skills that will prepare them for reading, writing and working with numbers.
The first grade represents a year of new beginnings. First graders are exhilarated when they learn something new. This is the most exciting grade. They learn to read, work with numbers, they learn about our community and their planet and, most importantly, they expand their knowledge of Jesus. Their exhilaration quickly spreads throughout your child’s classroom and into your family. First graders are creative. Their ability to imagine stories and invent games is unlimited. Therefore, it is important that you continue to cultivate this sense of wonder in your child. The first grade classroom’s students and teacher become a vital part of your child’s life. First graders are generous and will share their friendship, thoughts, and feelings with people of all ages. They are eager to succeed and need plenty of encouragement.
The second grade represents a year of exploration and investigation. The second grader is introduced to special information about Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Language and thought. They experience a big jump both in interest and ability. Their introduction to cursive writing becomes a great goal to achieve. Second graders like to read and they become more prolific readers. It is in this grade that your child becomes extremely engrossed in what he/she is doing and almost seems to absorb everything that surrounds him/her. It is in the second grade that your child is prepared for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. It is with much anticipation that your child and family will share the joy in receiving the graces from these sacraments. The second grader is now equipped to continue his/her academic and spiritual growth.
