1st Grade Literature

Throughout the upcoming school year your child will read and discuss classic works of literature. The tradition of Great Hearts Academies has always been for students to develop a personal library of books that they read and revisit during their time at Great Hearts, treasuring for years to come. We call these books “Classics to Keep”. Parents and students are strongly encouraged to purchase these books for their own personal collections so that they can mark them and keep them, allowing students to develop their own impressive library of classics over the course of their academic career with Great Hearts. For families who do not purchase the texts, their student will be given access to a copy of these books as part of their curriculum. Students should not mark the books provided by Great Hearts and will be asked to return them in good condition once their class has finished working with the book.
