December is magical in 1M!!!

Jesus our brother kind and good

Was humbly born in a stable rude.

And the friendly beasts around Him stood.

Jesus our brother kind and good!

The magic, awe, and excitement of Jesus' birth and Santa coming  are two wonderful things about first grade!

But...the learning continues...I hope!!!

We are learning about The Holy Spirit...the 3rd person of the Blessed Trinity and how the Holy Spirit came to Jesus' Apostles on Pentecost.

MATH...We continue with Fact Families(making 4 facts from the same 3 numbers,2 addition and 2 subtraction).

2+3=5

5-3=2

We will work on estimation, place value of digits, and continue to learn our addition and subtraction facts by counting forward and backwards.

LANGUAGE ARTS...Consonant Blends, interrogitive and declarative sentences, and completing short vowels are our focus.  We will also go more into depth on story plots, beginnings and middles and ends of stories.  We will talk about Book Reports and do one together as a class!
