First Grade News
This week in language arts we have been working on the long /u/ sound spelled as ew, ou, and oo. We are reading a story called, A Butterfly Grows by Stephen Swinburne. It explains the growth of a butterfly. Our comprehension skill is sequencing. We will complete an activity to go with our story that outlines these stages.
In religion, we discussed what it is like to have a close friend or family member move away. The children learned that after Jesus’ resurrection he visited his disciples several times, which made them happy. Eventually, Jesus had to go back to be with God in Heaven. We call this the Ascension. His disciples were very sad, but he promised to send them a helper called the Holy Spirit.
We have been studying plant and animal habitats in science. This week we will start our Foss unit on plants. We will begin by discussing the parts of a plant.
God bless you and have a wonderful week!
