Welcome to First Grade! 
We have set sail for a wonderful school year!  We are navigating our way through first grade and our crew is doing a great job.  

Some Adventures Included in March's Voyage
  1. Learning about the wonderful and important work Jesus did and ways we can grow closer to him during Lent.  We will attend 12:05 Mass on Wednesdays and Stations of the Cross at 8:15 on Fridays.
  2. Practicing addition and subtraction facts to sums of 20.
  3. Practicing reading, spelling, and writing words with long vowel sounds spelled with vowel pairs (ai, ay, ea, oa, ie).  Remembering the rule:  When two vowels go a-walking, the first one does the talking, and says its name!
  4.  Planting and tending to our individual pots of Easter grass.  We will predict and observe how our grass grows and what it needs to survive and thrive.
  5.  Conducting a Tomie DePaola author study.  He wrote and illustrated such a fun collection of so many books!  Just in time to enjoy Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato for St. Patrick's Day!
