    Education Experts Have a Solid Answer. If Kindergarten Is About Transitioning Away from the Play-based Learning of Preschool, Then First Grade Is About Stepping Fully into the World of Academics.

    “The Overall Goal of First Grade Is the Mastery of Skills Across All Domains – Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language and Physical,” Rashi Sharma, a Relationship Implementation Specialist at the National Association for the Education of Young Children, Wrote in an Email. “It Is Key for a First Grader to Graduate Feeling (Confident) in Their School Life.”

    Of Course, There Is Still Plenty of Time for Fun, and the Best First-grade Teachers Make Learning Engaging. But by the End of the Year, Experts Say There Are a Series of Academic Milestones Contained in State and Federal Learning Standards That a First Grader Generally Should Have Mastered.
