I can't believe that we have completed our first full month of school!  We've had fun getting to know each other, learning First Grade rules and routines, and we made some new friends too!


September was filled with many fun and exciting things.  We went on our first field trip of the year to Great Brook Farm, attend our first school mass as First Graders and met our 6th Grade Buddies!


Some of the things we learned about in September:


The Blessed Trinity

The Holy Family

God's greatest gift

The Sign of the Cross

number words

ordinal numbers

comparing numbers

numbers before, between and after

less than, equal to and greater than




simples sentences

initial medial and ending sounds


October we will continue to learn and grow as First Graders and also have some fun too.

Some of what we will be learning about:

Religion- the Great Commandment, all people are our neighbors, the seasons of the church, and that Jesus invited people to become his followers

Math-choosing strategies to solve a problem, joining groups of objects with sums of 6 or less, the plus (+) and equal(=) signs,

Phonics- initial, medial and final consonants,  recognizing and identifying short vowels,

Reading- sharing information and ideas about neighborhoods, schools and friends, realistic and fantasy, simple sentences, high frequency words, the plot, writing sentences with nouns, verbs and adjectives

We will be having our FIRST party of the year on Friday, October 31!!  It's Halloween Time!!! Yeah!
