Dear Parents of these Wonderful Grade Ones!

It looks like Spring is finally here! We went for a walk around the neighbourhood appreciating all of God's beauty in the signs that the seasons are changing. Highlights from April include our class trying to make an effort to use reusable containers. Thank-you for your support in teaching stewardship of the Earth to our upcoming generation!

Looking forward to this month in:

Religion, we will learn about how God calls us to grow in holiness.

Math, we are working on word problems, using our knowledge of basic math facts including doubles. Our focus will move to a brief review of geometry followed by data management during the month.

Language, it is amazing the reading progress made by your children!  Your home support is invaluable!  The students love to look at how their writing has changed since September, especially the length of their work.  We continue to read and write, with attention to editing for misplaced capitals and missing periods.  Many are using the Word Wall without reminders and can recognize the vowel sounds in most words.

Science, we will make a musical instrument that creates sound to wrap up our Energy Unit and move to our new unit on Living Things.

Social Studies, the Grade Ones will begin to work on Local Community Helpers.

Once again, thank-you for supporting your child's practising of the scripts and spelling words, as well as completing the bookbag work!  It is greatly appreciated.

Yours in learning,

K. Lapierre
