                                                                  WOW!  We got to visit with St. Nicholas!



 Dec. 8, 2017

       We were very busy this week with Christmas and Advent activities.  Making a Christmas tree glyph and and visiting with St. Nicholas were two of our favorites!  Here is what's coming up this week for the 1st graders:

    Language Arts:  

       We'll begin Unit 6 in "Adventures of the SuperKids".  The phonics focus in this unit is long vowel words.  We'll read the story "The Foolish  Giant"to practice reading long vowel words. 



  We'll continue to work on place value with tens and ones.  We'll practice adding with 2-digit numbers and try out some Christmas math games.



  Our special focus for the next few weeks will be to show Christmas Kindness to others.  Our elf friends, Emmie and Ernie, have arrived! They will help us find ways to spread kindness around our entire school!   













Science/Social Studies: 

    We'll continue working on our "Christmas Customs Around the World"  unit.  We'll "travel" to other countries to learn about how other people celebrate Christmas. This week we'll learn about Sweden and France.
