Grade 1

Week of Nov. 21-28

Hi Grade One Families,

Throughout the month of November, we have been learning about the saints. We first talked about what a saint is and then began reading stories about the lives of different saints. We will wrap up our learning by reflecting on what we can do in our own lives to answer the call to be saints. 

In Language Arts, we have completed the UFLI Alphabet Review and Longer Words Unit and have began to explore the UFLI Digraph Unit. Please continue to review your child’s reading resources found in their Home Reading Folders.

This month we have also completed the first Open Parachute unit Helping our Feelings & Repairing with Others at school. Please keep an eye out for the next Open Parachute email with information on the next unit of study.
