Week of April 26th-30th

Hello First Grade Families!

What a CRAZY week! We had a gorgeous Tuesday and then wet the rest of our week. We have made the best of it though! We know warmer weather is coming and we are so excited.

We began our new story, The Family Tree. We talked about family traditions and values. We are finishing up our Chapter 10 in Math and will look to test next week. We only have 2 more chapters now and are excited for the end of the year. We will be wrapping up our Science unit and test as well. We will transition back into Social Studies for a few weeks.

We are really working on staying safe and following our classroom rules. We want to continue to be in school and know how important it is to be safe. We talked about being safe at recess and while being in class with others.

Up Next…

In spelling we will be focusing on the <nk> pattern.

We will continue our reading of, The Family Tree. We will be focusing on our vocabulary words and creating SECOND GRADE sentences! Yes we are preparing for our move to second and will be trying our best to write as best we can!

In Math we will be complete Chapter 10.We will show our knowledge on graphs and begin to prepare for our Test.

In Science we will complete our discussion of Rocks and Soil. We will test on the properties and what makes each natural resource important to us.

In Religion we will be reading from our children’s Bible. This is such a fun week as we explore different stories and find a greater connection to each. We will watch Mass as a whole class on Thursday.

*We are always in need of baby wipes and disinfecting wipes. We use about 200 disinfecting wipes and 125 baby wipes a week!*

Please continue to let me know if you have any questions/comments.

Thank you!
