K12 Image ElementarySchool Student image

Young children learn mostly through playing. But in first grade, playtime learning transforms into a world of symbols and more abstract concepts. With K12-powered online learning, families with a first grader in Arkansas can experience public school from home and enjoy those “Ah-ha” moments when their student makes an important first-time connection that helps them grasp a new concept. And the mobility of Arkansas’ tuition-free,* K12-powered online school means your student can make these critical discoveries at home or on the go—pretty much wherever there’s an internet connection.

Effective Curriculum with a Two-Fold Approach

First graders at Arkansas’ K12-powered online school make cognitive advances by using K12’s engaging curriculum. Students focus on core courses plus art and music through a combination of digital and hands-on learning experiences. This two-fold approach introduces young students to key concepts and then reinforces them. The curriculum for first grade in Arkansas also includes hands-on education materials**—such as books, math manipulatives, and art supplies—which are part of the K12-powered program.

Integrated Courses

Many of the first grade courses are integrated so subject matter in one course aligns with the subject matter in another. For example, in history, students learn about ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, India, and China. Then in their art courses, students explore the visual art and architecture of these cultures and create hands-on artworks inspired by what they’ve learned. This approach lets students develop understanding about a subject from different angles and builds idea upon idea for deeper retention.
