Week in Review of November 5th-November 9th


Greetings from First Grade!

                        It is hard to believe report cards have gone home for our first quarter! Please fill out the pre-conference form that was in your child’s report card envelope and return it to school asap. This will allow us to maximize our conference time.

In Superkids, we practiced our words with –ng and were amazed at how changing the vowel helped us learn how to spell many new words. We also practiced deciding between real and make-believe stories based on character’s actions.

In Math, we are becoming experts on creating the inverse operation for addition and subtraction number sentences. We are also learning how to correct false number sentences to make them true.

In Religion, we learned that the Holy Spirit gives us the gift of reverence. We know this means we can show everyone great respect.

In Social Studies, we started sharing what we know about Pilgrims and have started adding to our knowledge banks. We watched a video that took us on a tour of the Mayflower. We were surprised by how much everyone had to share with each other. We have also been giving thanks for all of the special people and things in our lives.

As always, thank you for everything you do for your child and our school community! Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions!

                                                                                                            Yours truly,
