2018-2021 Transition 1st

Preliminary Transition First Grade
There will be a two year transition for STG labs.
2018-2019 is a gap year.  Many current standards are being assigned to other grade levels.  Many of the labs we teach will support the new standards.  These labs will be re-designed to reflect the new grade level they will be taught at.
Some labs we teach will be re-developed or discontinued.
As we learn how ISD adopts their new curriculum and kits we will update this page and lessons we offer.
This is preliminary. We will align our lessons After ISD makes their final determination of what and where NGSS standards will be applied.
