Hello Grade One Families!
We had a very successful first week of Grade One and as we enter this second week of school, the Grade One class will continue to learn and practice classroom and school routines. The students are eager to share their knowledge with me. This month we will be focusing on the following areas of study:
Religion: welcoming others and the theme "Live the Joy of the Gospel"
English Language: oral reading (using the ReadWell program), sentence writing, sequencing of poems and events in stories
Science: weather and seasons
Social Studies: school rules, roles, and responsibilities
I will be outlining the curriculum for the year as well as many other Grade One routines at Meet the Teacher Night on Tuesday September 16 at 6:45pm.
This will be another busy week in Grade One including the following:
Monday: PE class
Tuesday: PE class
Wednesday: the students will bring home their agenda books and home reading for the first time (I will blog about this on Tuesday evening)
Thursday: first visit to the school library
Friday: PE class
The walkathon pledge forms were sent home on Friday. Please help us with this important fundraiser by collecting pledges and volunteering to walk or work at a station on Walkathon Day...Friday September 26. Pledge sheets and money should be sent in after the walkathon not before.
Please send in birthday pictures, emergency forms, pick-up forms, and walkathon volunteer forms as soon as possible. Thank-you to everyone who has already done so!
Have a wonderful week!
