   First Grade December Newsletter

December is here! We wait with anticipation for the birth of Jesus at Christmas. Advent is a special time to prepare our hearts for Jesus by doing acts of kindness. Throughout the month we will be reading Advent and Christmas stories and participating in festive activities. Santa visits us on December 7th. Our Christmas Pageant will be on December 14th. We are busy practicing songs for this special day. Families are welcome to attend!

In ELA, we will continue to build fluency by reviewing short vowel patterns, and reading together in whole groups and small groups. We will review sight words. It is a good idea to review all learned sight words at home.  Our comprehension focus will be story structure (parts of a story), sequencing, and visualization.

In Math we have begun Chapter 5  . This chapter explores measurement through standard and non-standard measurements. New strategies we will learn are: estimation, comparing longest and shortest, and measuring in inches.

In Religion our focus will be preparing ourselves for the birth of Jesus. We will read Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments. We will create our very own Jesse Trees.

We look forward to spending this special and exciting time of year with your children. We would like to wish you a very Blessed and Merry Christmas!
