Today, your children received the first workbook of the school year. You will find the ELA workbook in your child’s backpack. Will you kindly cover the workbook with clear contact paper which can be found at Raindew. Kindly return the ELA notebook with your child on Monday, September 10, 2018.
Your children wrote this information down in the notebook which they will be using for homework. They did a wonderful job copying the information from the blackboard.
Next week they will be receiving additional workbooks. Please cover them and return them the next day as we will begin to use them.
Thank you for entrusting your precious children into my care. They are so joyful and sweet.
I feel blessed that I have this opportunity to be with them.
It was wondering meeting you during these three days.
First grade has been busy learning about how to make graphs and charts in math to show information. They have been working with tally marks with their classmates to show information about a topic. In ELA first graders have been writing their opinions about their favorite seasons and giving reasons to support their opinion. We have also begun to talk about the different sacraments in Religion. First graders continue to work hard in Science and Social Studies by learning about weather, the water cycle and how to earn and save money.
First Grade Scientists
First grade has been hard at work in writing. They have been practicing writing informational pieces in which they tell their readers facts or how to do something in real life. They have been working very hard in math as they practice showing numbers in more complex ways such as tens and ones, using different manipulatives to help them. In science, we have begun learning about states and properties (solids, liquids and gases). They can’t wait to get in to the makerspace to show these properties using everyday real objects!
