Grade 1 - Mrs. Moore
Welcome to First Grade! First Grade is a wonderful grade. The children are fun, creative, challenging and so eager to learn. The most rewarding part of this grade is having all the children reading and writing by the end of the year. The love of reading is the goal in my classroom!
Spring, spring,A wonderful thing!
Flowers are blooming and birds are on wing.
Children are playing so carefree today.
And the sunshine is shining all through the day!
RELIGION...Holy Week and The Three Days , Easter and the 7 Sacraments are our topics this month. We will also be practicing for the Holy Thursday Para-Liturgy which the first grades are in charge of.
