December In 1A

 

The Christmas Season is probably the most exciting time of year for children and children at heart!   Our class this month will focus on Advent, when we prepare for the birth of Jesus, Christmas Day when we celebrate Jesus' birth, and the importance of the  Advent Wreath.


I will also introduce subtraction using a number line, fact families, related subtration and addition facts.  In Phonics we will focus on short vowel u, write short vowel u words in context and reveiw all the short vowel sounds.  In Reading/English we will learn about Exclamatory sentences, review asking and telling senteces, common nouns, digraphs and cause and effect.


Some important dates to remember this month are: Friday, December 4, at 6pm for the Christmas Tree lighting, Tuesday, Decemember 8, Immaculate Conception Mass at 9:15 and Thursday, December 10, Pre-k-2 Christmas Concert at 10:00am.

 

I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and HEALTHY New Year!!:)

 

Love,

Mrs. Allen
