Here's just some of the things our first graders will be learning during the week of October 15th:


We will learn how the Church Calendar works, including Ordinary Time and special Feast Days. 

We will continue to work on subtraction concepts.


The children keep working on their writing and phonics skills each day with their dictation.  Our spelling test is Friday; please practice this week's six new spelling words and four new sight words.  See the note regarding "marking up" that is taped in your child's notebook.

Our stories this week will center around the "Essential Question": How does your body move?

Social Studies/Science

The children will read and learn about many new concepts in their weekly Scholastic News Magazine and monthly issue of Scholastic's Science Spin.  We will be reading about spiders in this week's issue. 

Best regards,
