Parents, our weather has changed so please make sure your child comes to school with a jacket that is good when it rains and if possible, rain boots.
The white laundry basket in the classroom is very full. If your child is missing some uniform or other items, please come in and check the white basket.
Today’s homework is for parents to sign the spelling. Also, I made a mistake on the field trip notice that went home. The date of the field trip should have read Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.
I have posted a list of the field trips we will be going on this year so you are able to arrange your schedule if you would like to come help supervise my students. It is on the right hand side under Upcoming Events; just click on the icon.
Christian Education (Religion)
We will make a point to make time throughout the day to be still and be with God. This term we will be deliberate in making the sign of the cross and saying Hail Mary, Our Father and Glory Be. We also join the rest of the students in praying the Angelus and the grace before meal.
Remember, it is always a good idea to read, write and share stories.
The spelling words and spelling homework sheet for first term are below. Just click on the link.
We are counting daily to 100 by tens and ones. We are also adding doubles orally (o+0=0, 1+1=2, 2+2=4,……up to 10+10=20). The students are also showing number recognition and one to one correspondence for numbers 0 – 30. As of October, we started addition. We are adding one, two and three (6+1, 1+5, 6+2, 2+5, 6+3, 3+5).
Remember, when we add (+) the number gets bigger and when we subtract, the answer gets smaller. It is fun to play math addition and subtraction games with a family member or a friend.
Please have gym strip (shorts and shirt) in school on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Bonjour mes amis! Welcome to Grade 1 French! I look forward to teaching you again this year and learning more French words and songs!
