Welcome to 1st Grade!

 April 24, 2017


Reading/Grammar – This week we will focus on what treasure we can share with our neighbors. We will read a realistic fiction called, “Henry and Mudge and Mrs. Hopper’s House.” In grammar, we will work on adjectives that compare. The students will add -er to an adjective to compare two persons, places, or things. They will add -est to an adjective to compare three or more persons, places, or things. We will continue to work with a graphic organizer to connect background information to our story.

Spelling – This week we will focus on suffixes ending in -ly and -ful. We will practice our words by typing the words in computer class, writing the words, and in spelling games. Our spelling test will be on Friday, April 28th.

Math – The students have been working on fractions and symmetry. They have identified objects that show symmetry and drew lines of symmetry. This week the students will work on fractions by showing and identifying one half, one third, or one fourth of a group of two, three, or four objects.

Religion – Prior to our spring break the students have been busy reflecting on their Lenten journey. They learned about how Jesus showed us His Great Love by giving the gift of Himself. This week we will focus on the Easter season. We will celebrate Jesus rising from the dead with new life. The students will read the story, “The Road to Emmaus.”

Science –  We have moved on from studying animals to studying our bodies and discovering what is inside our bodies. The students are now physiologist, and they are busy working on discovery and learning about the organs of a human body and some organs you can see and others are hidden. This week we will focus on the bones inside our body. We will learn how many bones we have inside, the bones in our skull, the largest bone and the smallest bone in our body.  




Welcome Back!!!

Hope you had a restful and peaceful spring break.
