In our final PROMISE isSue Jesus compares himself to a good shepherd who cares for and protects his sheep. We learned that a shepherd is an image of God’s care and we identified Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Children discussed the many people who care for them and how they show they care. Special Person Day was a wonderful example of sharing the Mass with people who care for us. All of the First Graders were angelic reader sand singers at Mass. A huge THANK YOU to our Room Parents who provided refreshments for our guests.
Our class is learning about writing a report. Children have chosen the subject, an animal, which has to be at Lincoln Park Zoo, they are gathering facts and details about their animal. We have practiced on Words Their Way Word Work, sight words, and Handwriting. Learning about plural nouns and their use was introduced. Opportunities for independent reading are part of our daily routine.
We began Unit 7 Measurement. The objectives this week were to develop and use math vocabulary relating to length. The vocabulary words are: height, length, longer, taller, and shorter. Children practiced measuring with standard and non-standard measuring tools.
The folders for INVESTIGATING WATER were sent home. We started our new Unit of study ANIMALS .
