1st Grade Garden Oct. 3-7


Teachers notes:

Happy first week of October, we have so much planned for this month. I am so glad to be back in the classroom after being gone for 3 days doing different trainings so I can be the best teacher I can be. Please keep filling out those reading logs. I would love for your student to go to the reading party. I would love if the entire 1st grade got to go!

Please be filling out those field trip forms and getting them sent in along with the $4 for your student. If you are going you do not have to pay unless you want to buy a pumpkin.

Reminder that family picnic day is this Friday, please let me know if you plan to bring a lunch for your student. This will help me with knowing how many lunches I will need from the cafeteria. Thank you so much.

Also, a reminder to get those onward campaign labels filled out and turned in by this Friday. Again, thank you so much for all your help and support of your children's education. I hope you have a wonderful week and if you have any questions my door/email is always open.

English:

This week we are working on r and s blends in words, breaking down words into individual sounds, and writing original sentences. Please continue to have your student read to you each night and ask them questions while they read such as, "who is the story about?", "What do you think might happen next?", etc. If you would like a list of questions that you can ask your student while they read, please email me and let me know. I can make one and send it home with your student and over email. Having conversations about what your child is reading is just as important as them reading on their own.

Math:

For math this week we are focusing on adding 2 single digit numbers together. We will be making flashcards in class for them to practice at home. While this will not be homework, please go over the flashcards with your child a few times over the next few weeks. Many of them are struggling with this math concept. Thank you and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Religion:

This week we will be discussing the wonderful gift of Baptism. If you have pictures of your child's baptism, please share those with them this week. This will help them make a real connection to what we are talking about.

Our saint this week is Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821) Elizabeth Seton, a wife and mother, felt God's call to become a Catholic after her husband died. She became a teacher and opened a Catholic girls' school in Maryland. Elizabeth Seton became a religious sister and founded the Sisters of Charity in the United States. In 1975 she became the first American-born saint. Her feast day is January 4th.

Prayer for the Week:

St. Francis of Assisi's prayer:

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon, where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen."
