Parents, I have added the spelling words for third term. Also today a permission form will be given for our next field trip which is on Tuesday, April 3rd to HR MacMillan Space Centre. We will be riding on the school bus to HR MacMillan Space Centre.
Today’s homework is to give spelling test to parent to sign and practice The Friends poem. Also, continue to pray the Guardian Angel Prayer and do good deed for your parents. Speech Arts is always a good idea to practice daily. Also a good idea is to continue to practice addition and subtraction facts to 30.
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. We are learning to read words with two vowels such as need, meat, coat, rain by reciting, “When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking and says its name. The second one is silent.”
The spelling words and spelling homework sheet for third term
We are now working on understanding addition and subtraction word problems.
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!
