Grades 1 and 2 in the state of West Virginia prepare students to have the knowledge, skills, and personal dispositions needed to be successful in later grades. The foundation for exploration and collaboration are developed as educators provide a fully integrated comprehensive approach to learning. The WV Teaching Resources for Educational Excellence (TREE) provides a one-stop resource center for educators and gives a broad range of opportunities for professional learning and links to professional resource sites, lessons aligned to the WV College- and Career-Readiness Standards, guidance documents, and formative assessment resources.
