In March, first graders are very excited to be learning about the seven sacraments with Father John. They look forward to learning from him every week. In Reading and Phonics we are studying long vowels and continuing to practice our sight words. In Social Studies, students have been excited to learn about our national symbols and landmarks. They enjoy learning about the different places to visit in our country such as the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, and Washington Monument. Our writing unit this month is focused on writing personal narratives where students are writing short stories about their own lives. We are working hard to tell the story in order, using the transition words: first, next, then, and last.
