First Grade Weekly Update

Thank you to all the parents who have donated more unscented wipes so far.

The focus for lent in first grade is spending time doing for others and less time doing for yourself.  Students brought home green “leaves” to write down good deeds they are doing for lent.  They can return them one at a time to add to our tree as it blossoms for Spring.  I have more leaves if needed.

Here is a look at what we are working on this week:

English Language Arts:

  • read  Buster is Back, Buster’s Surprise, Homer 
  • sight words:  boy   girl   two   four   about   over   before
  • contractions with irregular n’t (will not-won’t,  cannot-can’t)
  • compound words


  • 2 dimensional shapes 
  • defining attributes for shapes


  • Lent
  • Catholic Relief Services-Focus on Options for the Poor and Vulnerable with a story from Uganda
  • Jesus shares God’s love
  • Zones of Regulation

Social Studies:
