Yesterday, for Earth Day, we got to help pick up garbage in the cemetery! I am so proud of these firsties! They make me so proud to be their teacher!
Remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
This past month has FLOWN by! I can't believe we are already in APRIL! It was just very surprising to me! We have been hard at work in the classroom creating amazing memories from learning to work together to creating amazing art work projects!
We had spring break 2 weeks ago, and since we have been back, we have been on the go the whole time! My students' are just keeping me young!
With that being said, let's check out what we will be working on!
Reading has been going AMAZING! Your child should come home today and tell you the good news to their new reading levels! In class we have learned about Clarabelle-The Milking Cow! Coming up, we will be focusing on the word "Perseverance" and how our characters in our next story show us how strong they are by continuing to push through no matter how hard the task is!
Phonics has just been PHENOMENAL! We just wrapped up our last unit on long o's! We have mastered short and long vowels! Coming up, we are going to be focusing on s blends!
That is right, the first grade class has been in person for 100 days of school! Thank you parents for keeping your child healthy and happy so that we may remain in person! Now this year we had a special 100 days of school, it happened to fall on Catholic Schools Week, so we got a double whammy in celebrations, COVID style!
At the end of the blog today, I will upload the students' 100 year old self portraits ~ I just love this day and activity!
While Christmas was a nice break from the classroom, I sure did miss all of my students! I had many students tell me all the cool new gifts they got, but one thing they all really shared was getting to spend time with their families! And my heart melted at that moment, as an educator, the family is the most important to my students, and they were all so grateful for that special time, despite Covid still being active.
