Grade 1 - Mrs. Moore

Marilyn 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! 

I have had the honor of being a First Grade teacher at St. Christopher's for over 30 years! I have had the pleasure of teaching the children of my former students! My husband and I live in Nashua and I have two adult daughters. We have two cats!

Learning and Fun are Ongoing in October in 1M!

Fall is Here

The leaves are falling!

I think I hear The Great Pumpkin calling!!

Happy Fall and October to all!

October learning continues...

RELIGION...We are learning about The Holy Family and how Jesus and his family were different and similiar to ours.  We will meet John the Baptist and understand his role in Jesus' life.  God's neverending love is stressed!


MATH...We are completing Ordinal Numbers and reviewing positional words and fewer, less, greater and more.  Addition and reciprocals(flips) 2+3=5, 3+2=5, addends, sums, addition and math sentences are October's focus.  We will also be doing a mini unit on telling time to the hour and half hour using a Pumpkin Clock that each child will make!


LANGUAGE ARTS...Online Reading plus using our Anthology and Reader's Writer's Notebook practice pages is completed daily.  Comprehension skills, author's purpose, literary elements are reviewed.  We are reviewing  initial, medial and final consonant sounds.  Short a, i and o have been introduced  in our Pearson Reading series.  We continue to learn new spelling words each week and have weekly spelling tests.  The class learns to spell, read and understand the meaning of the words.    We keep our sentence writing current through Journal Writing.  We use upper case letters, correct punctuation and use nouns, verbs and adjectives correctly!
