Hello Grade One Families!
I hope that you all enjoyed the sunny weekend! I truly can not believe that it is the first day of May already. Where does the time go? With the beautiful spring weather upon us, I would strongly suggest that each student bring a baseball cap or sunhat to school to wear outside for recess and lunch playtimes, and any outdoor PE classes. Please label the hat with your child's name. They may either wear the hat to and from school each day or keep it in their locker until the end of the school year.
I would like to thank and congratulate the students who read and did the offertory procession at the school Mass last week. They worked hard to prepare and were very prayerful in their assigned roles.
As we begin this new month, please note the following:
Topics we will cover:
Religion - Mary and the Rosary
Math - Geometry
Writing - "imagination" stories
Reading Comprehension - continuing with inferencing and then visualizing (making "pictures in your head" of what is read)
Social Studies and Science - ponds and local animals (habitats, diet etc.)
