Science Grade 1

Science is everywhere. A student rides to school on a bus, and in that instance alone, there are many examples of technology based on the scientific method. The school bus is a product of many areas of science and technology, including mechanical engineering and innovation. The systems of roads, lights, sidewalks and other infrastructure are carefully designed by civil engineers and planners. The smartphone in the student’s hand is a miracle of modern computer engineering.

Outside the window, trees turn sunlight into stored energy and create the oxygen we need to survive. Whether “natural” or human-derived, every aspect of a student’s life is filled with science — from their own internal biology to the flat-screen TV in the living room.

Science education is one of the most important subjects in school due to its relevance to students’ lives and the universally applicable problem-solving and critical thinking skills it uses and develops. These are lifelong skills that allow students to generate ideas, weigh decisions intelligently and even understand the evidence behind public policy-making. Teaching technological literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving through science education gives students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Here, children can opt for the Science course along with the other subjects. This course is spread over all the grades in our school and advances along the following areas.

Welcome to my class. My name is Trifona Allen (trifona.allen.gr1@auksun.com) and I am a virtual Grade1 online program e-teacher. I teach the English language to my students. I have a teaching diploma at the elementary level, with a specialization in Early Childhood education. I am a dedicated, resourceful and goal-driven professional educator with a solid commitment to the social and academic growth and development of every child. As a teacher, I feel that an accommodating and versatile individual with the talent to develop inspiring hands-on lessons can capture a child’s imagination and breed success. I love to teach online. I realize that e-teaching as a profession is supremely rewarding, both for the mentor and protégé. – My goal is to create a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating and encouraging to our e-students. Learning a different language can be hard, but it can also be a fun and rewarding experience. Although I am a native English speaker, I can relate to students because I had to learn French when I was younger. When I first started learning French, it was a real challenge, especially pronunciation. I was so embarrassed to speak and I would never put my hand up in class because I was scared of making mistakes. Finally, I had a great teacher who taught me that making mistakes and learning from them is the best way to learn a language. She was right! I have been teaching for years now. Before teaching, I studied anthropology and archaeology. This background has helped me to understand some of the cultural differences of my students, including differences in how they may approach learning, writing, body language, and speaking. I teach students from various backgrounds, ages, and levels. From immigrants to international students, private lessons to classrooms, my experiences have been varied and have allowed me to gain insight into the challenges students face. Teaching is one of those great professions that allow you to be forever learning. While I teach students both French and English, they teach me about their cultures, their lives, and other ways to see the world. It is a privilege to teach and I am thankful for all of my students over the years who have shared their stories, interests, and dreams with me. – Have fun!
