1st Grade DECEMBER News!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!
In Bible we will be learning about the coming of Jesus to earth…the REAL reason for the season. We will explore God’s love and purpose behind all of this and the example Christ set for us during His short time here. Well known stories, but life-changing in their impact.
Mrs. Spade loves teaching the unit on Great Americans as we explore some of our founding fathers who left such lasting impact on our nation. We will also be doing a story write on our favorites. Ask the kids to share what they are learning. And, by the way, as you see their Creative Writing stories come home, compliment them on the growth you see in their ability to express themselves now in story form. It is an evidence of all that they have learned in their Reading/Phonics efforts. I’m proud of them!!
So, hold onto your Santa hats!! Stay faithful to the daily things that help your child succeed and before you know it…we will be celebrating HIS birthday and enjoying a welcome holiday break.
