June 2018

Dear Parents,

Wow June is here and how the year has flown by.  It is helpful in this warm weather for your child to have a refillable water bottle that can be used throughout the day.

Our school areas of interest for this month are Father’s Day and summer fun.

As for our Awesome Grade One’s, here’s what to look forward to in June:

Religion:  we will review our parables The Good Shepherd, The Prodigal Son and The Good Samaritan and reflect upon their message for us in our relationship with God.

Math:  we will begin a unit on estimating and measuring mass of an object.

Science:  we will complete our unit of study on the life cycle of plants and continue with a study of nature around us

Social Studies:  we continue to study our community environment with a focus on  community helpers, their place and importance in our community

Language:  we are discussing the importance of writing 4 or 5 sentences for a journal entry or piece of directed writing.  Many students still need a reminder to finger space between words and use an uppercase letter at the beginning of a sentence and a period to indicate the end.

We have had a wonderful year filled with learning, laughter and God's many blessings and graces.  Have a restful and safe summer.

God bless, 

Mrs. Bekking
