Hi everyone, My name is Miss Olivia Cancellieri and I am very happy to be your First Grade teacher. First grade is a very exciting year filled with many activities and experiences which foster both the spiritual and academic growth of each child. We enjoy each day together as we learn, celebrate, share and live our Catholic faith. Visit our webpage often to see what’s going on in grade one!
FIRST GRADE NEWS!
Happy New Year and welcome back first grade! I hope you all had a relaxing break. I cannot wait to get the new year started…we definitely have many exciting things coming up!
Our first graders learned about MLK and his importance in history. We learned about his “I have a dream…” speech and we got to write our own “I have a dream…” speech. We all spoke about how we hope for peace in the world!
This month in LA we are focusing a lot on our writing skills! Not only are we practicing our grammar but also practicing writing our ideas on paper. We have all written our own fantasy story.
In math this month we are learning all about graphs. We will be making our own bar graph and tally chart where we survey our classmates on some of their favorite things. We may even be doing a school wide survey…👀
In science we will be looking at plants and their life cycle. We will be studying the different parts of the plant and why they are important. In social studies we are looking at the calendar and learning how many days are in each month! We even learned the calendar song!
In Religion we have been studying the Good Samaritan and thinking about what it means to be a Good Samaritan. We wrote about time when we remember someone being a Good Samaritan to us!
Things to come next month….
We will be having a little Valentines Day party on the 14th!
We will also be celebrating President’s Day!
In the first week of February we will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week! We will be celebrating our students on the 1st with Carnival day!
