Science in first grade will conclude our space and technology unit and dig a bit deeper into gardening and life science.
Social studies covers needs and wants. Our unit on economics will help us learn more about working. We will talk about savings and volunteering.
In math we are working on addition and subtraction facts to 18. Bar graphs are currently being studied. We will still work on money, time, and calendar facts! Fractions and two digit addition is coming up! We are ready!!!
We will enjoy student reading at this time of year. When a child has a short book that he/she would like to read to the class they prepare by practicing the book and then they share their book with us. It is nice for us to sit and listen to others read. It is also very relaxing.
Always is the word we use when talking about God’s love. He will always love and care for us. He has always been with us and will always be with us. This is the covenant he made with us. We’ve been discussing this covenant in religion. We told stories about God’s love from the Old Testament. These stories and others in the Bible emphasize that God wants us to be happy with him forever in heaven. The Beatitudes teach us the attitudes of those who belong to God’s kingdom. By living the Beatitudes, we begin to experience the true happiness of God’s kingdom, which will come in its fullness at the end of time.
We are also learning that the Holy Spirit acts in each sacrament to bring us new life in God. We are learning how the sacraments celebrate God’s love.
This is a wonderful time of year! May God bless you as we bring our studies this year to a close. May you continue to walk in faith.
Center time, Superkids Reading, and centers make for a strong independent learning environment.

Each day your first grader is responsible to complete each component of the DAILY FIVE. We achieve this in our guided reading, brain chores, center work, and independent learning.
