March

Welcome Back!  We all enjoyed a nice and needed vacation and are ready to learn all the many new things instore for us this  month!  Some of the things we will be learning about this month:

Our focus in Relgion this month will be Lent.  The first grade will learn that Lent is the time when the Church gets ready to celebrate Jesus' Death and Resurrection. Each of us cut out a stained glass cross to color each time we do something to grow closer to Jesus during Lent.  We will also learn about The Three Days when we celebrate Jesus' dying and rising to new life.

In Math we will be identifying sets of 10 ones, counting by 10s to 100, writing numbers 11-100 using numbers and number words, estimating, writing the expanded form of  2-digit numbers, identifying and writing numbers just before, between and just after a given 2 digit numbers and writing numbers that are ten less and ten more.

In Phonics our focus will be reading and writing long a, i and o  words in context.  We will also be identifying and isolating medial sounds.

In Reading we will continue to review and learn about Venn Diagrams, comparing and contrasting, compound words, vowel sounds of the letter y, action verbs, nouns, realistic fiction and we will continue to work on reading with fluency, accuracy and expression.

St. Patricks Day will be so fun and exciting in the first grade. Each child is making a Leprechaun trap hoping to catch a Leprechaun or two in our classroom.   We will set the traps on Monday, March 16th in hopes of capturing one of the silly little rascals.

The STEM Fair next Thursday, March 12  1A will be doing an experiment about Taste Perception.  The project will examine whether people's perceptions of taste are influenced by their sight.

 

 

Happy St. Patrick's Day to one and all!
