First Grade News!
I hope that you are all having a wonderful week so far. Sorry for getting this out late. Last week was a lot of fun and we have some pictures at the bottom that we took last week. All of our friends who participated in the talent show and Spelling Bee did amazing!! Next week is Valentine's day already, so if you need a class list please email me and I can send you the list on email and in paper form. Our reading party is March 7th and to prepare I will be sending home a weekly update on how many more minutes they need to reach their goal. If you need a new reading log please email me and I will send one home with your student. Also my parents who volunteered to help with driving to BINGO this friday please email me to confirm that you will be able to help with transportation. Thank you again for all that you do, I could not do this without all your support and help. I hope that you have a wonderful week!

In Math this week we will continue working on adding and subtracting in word problems.
In religion this week we will be talking about how we pray with God's word. Our saint of the week is Saint Mark. Mark traveled with Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey. Mark's Gospel was the first to be written. It shows us the humanity of Jesus and challenges us to see how our lives connect to Jesus' suffering, Death, and Resurrection.
