Welcome to 1st Grade


Classroom News and Notes


Week of Jan. 17 – Jan. 21


Happy Monday!  This week in our Bible lessons we will learn about a talking donkey and about the Children of Israel finally entering the Promised Land.  In math we will add two digit numbers and learn to use a ruler to draw a line segment.  This can harder than it sounds.  Our phonics rule of the week is adding endings to words that end with silent e.  We will talk about Martin Luther King Jr., experiment with blubber to discover how Arctic animals stay warm, explore the Arctic via a virtual field trip, and take some MAP tests.  


Show and Tell is to bring something that means winter.


Looking ahead:  1) first graders sing in church on Sunday, February 6th  2) The 100th Day of school will be Thursday, January 27th.  Show and tell that week is something that means 100.  Work with your child to make a display or poster that shows 100.  Ideas from the past are posters with 100 pennies or cereal pieces glued on, Lego structures made from 100 Lego pieces, 100 suckers stuck in styrofoam,  a caterpillar with 100 pipe cleaner legs, a necklace with 100 beads, a shirt with 100 things stuck to it, etc.  I’m sure Pinterest has some great ideas.  :). 



Monday:  read lesson 7B / journal / memory: Luke 11:28. Blessed…are those who hear the word of God and obey it.

Tuesday:  reading or math

Wednesday : reading or math

Thursday: read lesson 8A / jounal / memory: Matthew 28:20 Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.


Have a happy week!
