1st Grade

17 Students
Mrs. Beth Carstens

 The first graders are working through a book with a page and activities for every day during Lent. We also made books about the Stations of the Cross. The whole student body participates in the Stations of the Cross every Friday afternoon during Lent and we will be having weekly Lenten prayer services as well.

The first graders are becoming Super Readers! They are beginning to work on long vowel patterns such as ou, ow, ie and igh. We are also working on finding the main idea and details in non-fiction text.

In Math, we are adding double digit numbers! How exciting! We are also learning to count pennies, nickels and dimes together.

In Science, we have just started a new unit about the moon and space!

Did you lose your spelling words?

One fun way to brighten up the winter months is Flashlight Friday! It's fun to read in the dark!

A great website to practice early reading skills is Starfall. It is fun and educational and a great way to review things we are working on in school. Most of the site is free.

A great paid site is abcmouse. You can follow your own learning path or pick and choose activities.

Of course, the best thing your student can do to increase their reading skills is to READ as often as possible. Watch for those little readers to come home from school and listen to what your student can do!
