My Dear, Wonderful, Loving Parents,

Today as we gathered together to share goodies and the joy of your children, what I knew all along was beautifully expressed with your outpouring of love to me. God not only blessed me with your treasures, but with each one of you. You are the heart of our school, and I thank God for the honor of knowing you, loving you, and I thank you for allowing me to be surrounded by your precious children. I love them all, and I love you all very much. You will always have a special place in my heart and my thoughts. God bless you and your beautiful, sweet, and joyful children. This is not a goodbye, as you know I cannot be away from our beloved St. Mel and the “little” treasures and gifts that make our St. Mel a special place.

God bless you always,

Mrs. Palladino

The children are so very sweet, loving and phenomenal, and we love Pete the Cat books that I thought it would be a cute idea for each of them to have the very Cool Pete the Cat. Today, we listened to some of our classmates read about the adventures of Pete the Cat! We had a GREAT day as always!!!

Both of these assignments are due tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

Kindly Note: Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12, 2018, I will give the children a Math Test on the concept of Subtraction. The children will be permitted to use counters in order to complete the sheet. We have been practicing our subtraction skills in class through classwork and homework using our Math Workbook as well as individual Math sheets. The students are mastering this skill quite nicely.

In class today, we began a writing activity entiltled, “I Saw One of Santa’s Reindeers”! We will continue this writing activity in which the children will explain what his/her reindeer did first, then did next, and finally what the reindeer did. We are in the first draft stage of this activity. After the children complete their first draft in which they write their ideas, I will sit with them and assist them with any editing and/or spelling they require. The Writing Process has many steps and this one in particular allows them to enjoy using their wonderful imaginations as well as use their knowledge of capitalization and punctuation rules which they have become very comfortable  and proficient with in their writing.

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!
