First Grade News

Dear Parents,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Our math lessons this week will continue to focus on the relationship between addition and subtraction.  The children will solve number sentences by using Rekenrek bracelets, ten frames and drawings.

Our ELA lessons this week will focus on main ideas, supporting details, settings, writing and responding to questions.  Our stories are "What Can You Get With a Nickel? and "An Odd Pet for Oswald."

In religion class we will learn about the seasons of the Church.  We will talk about the sacrament of Baptism.

Our science lesson this week will focus on safety in cars and on bikes.  The students will build a model car and learn about the importance of wearing seat belts.  They will also make a model bike helmet and learn how a helmet protects the brain.

Fondly,
Mrs. Dillon
