Dear Parents,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Our first grade class has been studying the life of St. Patrick and how he used the shamrock to teach people about the Holy Trinity. (Ask your student to tell you the three Persons in One God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; just like the the shamrock is one leaf with three parts.) Students are finding shamrocks at recess and naming the 3 Persons of the Holy Trinity!

We have been busy learning in first grade! In Religion, we are learning about Lent. The students have chosen a Lenten Promise to do for Jesus during Lent. They are doing some impressive things for Jesus during Lent, such as giving up video games, or candy, or doing kind deeds for their families such as cleaning up their toys without complaining, or sharing with siblings. They color in each day of their Lenten journey on a Lenten Calendar.

In Language Arts we are learning about contractions and what words can be shortened by making a contraction. We are learning how to write a contraction using an apostrophe where the letter is removed. (Ex. Would not = wouldn’t) Thank you for your continued reading support with your child at home! It really shows in their fluency progress in class.

We continue to practice decoding strategies when students encounter a new word they don’t know, such as: chunky monkey (cover a chunk of the word and read the part you know first), look at the pictures for clues, rhyming robot (think of a word you know that rhymes with the word), flip the sounds (try a short vowel sound, then try a long vowel sound to see which sounds right), and skip the word and read the rest of the sentence to see if you can use the context to figure it out.

In Math, we are working on measurement and have learned linear measurement with inches and feet, as well as non-traditional measurement with paper clips and counting cubes. We have also been practicing liquid measurement with cups, pints and quarts. The students have enjoyed demonstrating liquid measurement in class with water!

In Social Studies, we are reading about famous authors such as Dr. Seuss and we have been celebrating Reading Across America month of March.

In Science, we are finishing up our unit on states of matter with properties of liquids. The students have enjoyed mixing liquids such as oil, water, and syrup to learn about density and properties of matter. They have enjoyed learning about sink or float. and have been making predictions about outcomes such as cotton balls in beakers of water. It is impressive to hear their thinking and their understanding of concepts such as absorption.

Thank you again for all that you do to support your students! God bless you and your wonderful families!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Socarras
