1st Grade


First Grade Newsletter

May 2019

May has arrived! So many exciting things will be taking place this month. Our students are on their way to becoming second graders!

In ELA, we will continue our study of Unit 5. Our phonics lessons will focus on r-controlled vowels and new digraphs. We will continue to review short and long vowel sounds and patterns. Students will continue to decode, practice expression, and show fluency in their reading . Our students will be working diligently to improve writing skills. It is very important that your child reads each night.

In math, we will complete our unit on regrouping and double digit addition. Our focus of study will be “three-dimensional geometry”. As always, please continue to practice addition and subtraction at home.

In science and social studies, we will continue to focus on life cycles and the living environment. We will learn about ways to take care of the Earth and its natural resources.  
In religion, we will explore what Jesus said and did at the Last Supper in preparation to celebrate the sacrament of the Eucharist. We will learn that our gifts of bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ.

Thank you for your support.
