Happy New Year!
Thank you all so much for your kindness and generosity!
This month 1st grade will continue to work on addition and subtraction to 20. Continue to practice your math addition and subtraction facts. The 1st graders are doing awesome on their timed tests!
We will also continue counting to 120 and finding patterns with numbers.
In Religion we will begin the year talking about the Epiphany and the season of Christmas. Then we will finish up unit 3 by talking about Forgiveness and Prayer. Please continue to work on prayers and finding songs in the missalettes.
In Social Studies and Science we will begin the year by doing an Animal report. Students will research the animal they chose at home and in class we will go through the process of writing. They will also share their final report and the animal and habitat they created.
We will also discuss Martin Luther King Jr. and his I had a dream speech. We will talk about what it means to be "free" and what their dream for the world is.
The students will continue to learn new and exciting things in phonics. Phonics is very important in helping your children read. Please go over their daily phonics sheets and have them tell you about what they are learning.
Everyone is doing great with AR tests and word lists. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
