Welcome to 1st Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of Sept. 21-25
This week we will learn about Jesus’ baptism and about temptation. Both of these lessons show us that Jesus came to take our place. The Superkids introduce us to the /sh/ sound. Our spelling words will have that sound as well as having some sight words on our spelling list. We will continue our apple studies this week. Last week we celebrated International Dot Day, Constitution Day, and Talk Like a Pirate Day. This week we will usher in Autumn and maybe make an apple pie. Ask your child what happened when we froze an apple and thawed it again.
Show and Tell: Bring something shaped like a circle.
MONDAY: read lesson 5A The Baptism of Jesus / journal / baptism sheet (parent can fill out) / memory: Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
TUESDAY: math / supershort
WEDNESDAY: Superkid story / sign bookmark
THURSDAY: read lesson 5B / Jesus is Tempted / journal / memory: I Peter 5:8 Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Great work with the Sight Word lists! These kids love to find the sight words they know in poems that we read and in Superkid stories.
Have a great week!
