What's happening in First Grade !
May 10, 2019

We had another good week in the first grade!
We completed Chapter 6 in our math and took an assessment on Place Value. We will now move forward to comparing numbers. This is one of the easier concepts for the children to grasp. In Science, we will our study on air, which is another lesson in our Earth unit.
On Monday we will begin Level 6 in our Journeys book, which is the last book in this series. The children are doing a great job reading and understanding what they are reading. We are now able to discuss a story in detail.
This week, Mrs. Ryan came to school and we made this delicious cookie with goldfish, bubbles, and little fish swimming in water.
(blue icing) It was a fun project and the children enjoyed making it and eating it as well.
Thank you for allowing your child to participate in our Spring Concert. They had a great time and it was a great show.

Wednesday is dress down day! ($1.00 donation)

Have a great weekend and have a wonderful
Mothers Day!

We had a very productive week! We worked hard in reading, math, science, social studies and religion. We are focusing on comprehension, main idea, punctuation, and writing a complete sentence in ELA. This past week's spelling words were a bit difficult but next week, should be easy if the children know the base word. Please review these words every night. Math should also be less difficult than in the past. We continue to compare numbers: less than, greater than and equal to. We are culminating Lesson 3
(Water), and will begin Lesson 4 (Air).
In Social Studies we will focusing on Locating our Country and begin to learn the location of our 50 states. Aside from reading a bible story each day we will focus on this coming week's gospel story and work in our Promise booklets.
We continue to chant, read stories, exercise, do crafts and enjoy a bit of center time each  week. The year is quickly coming to a close and the first grade has been learning in leaps and bounds.
Enjoy your weekend.
