First Grade Dolphin News

This week the first graders “visited” the rainforest and learned about the four layers and what animals live in each part.  They continued to count by tens using place value blocks and dimes.  Students prayerfully colored the Stations of the Cross in their booklet as they learned how much Jesus loves them.

As you can see from the email sent to you today, St. John School will be closed until April 25.  My plan for helping you and your child continue to learn and grow is to send a daily email with assignments.  The goal is to work 1-2 hours each weekday. You will be using the materials sent home today (math workbook, printing book, science book, Stations of the Cross, Ocean Log, Lent path, and reading bag).  Each day I will send something like this (with more specific information to help you guide them).

Monday

  1. Ocean Log
  2. Daily 5:  Choose read to self, use the Balloon retelling page.
  3. Spelling: Sort your words today. Then label with the pattern.
  4. Religion: Complete Station of the cross #6
  5. Math: Workbook page…
  6. Science: Habitat Reading
  7. PE and Music: See links

My hope is that I can record myself teaching lessons like Calendar time, reading Humphrey, reading groups, and Science.  Stay tuned for more information soon.  Please let me know if you do not have access to a printer.  If I scan assignments by email and you can’t print them out, we can schedule a pick-up time at school as needed.

Many students were upset about what is happening around them.  They shared today that they are worried about grandparents getting the coronavirus, how school will work at home, who will be there at home if you are working etc. They act out when this happens because they don’t know how to tell you.  They feel our nervous energy.   This weekend, develop a plan that includes a structured routine for each day.  This will help their anxiety and let them have control of something in their lives.

 

Questions to Ask:

-What is a layer in the rainforest?

-What animal did we learn about today?

 

Special Notes

-We will resume Star Dolphins April 26

– Sunday Masses have been cancelled. If you tune in to EWTN or go to the Archdiocese of Seattle, they will have links to Masses you can watch online/TV.

First Grade Dolphin News

 We are sailing through March and the second trimester is coming to an end! The first graders attended Mass on Wednesday with their 8th grade buddies.  On Thursday, they had a chance to see the amazing performance put on by the middle school, “Beauty and the Beast”.  Hanna was our star rose fairy and did an incredible job! Today they participated in Stations of the Cross where we walk with Jesus.  They made beautiful promises for Lent like praying for their families, limiting TV, reading the Bible, and going to Mass on footprints.  Check out the bulletin board in the hallway for these promises.  This week the first graders learned about a temperate forest where deciduous and coniferous trees live.  They labeled a brown bear and wrote 3 interesting facts.  Did you know that bears have their cubs in the winter when they are in hibernation?  Next week we travel south to learn about the rain forest!

The first graders learned the best way to wash their hands so we don’t spread germs.  Thank you for keeping any sick children home.  Remember the school will keep you updated with any additional information to help us!

Primary Grades’ Lenten Service Project: Teddy Bear Patrol

We will be collecting new or gently used teddy bears or small stuffed animals no bigger than 12 inches in length for children in need. Please bring your donation to the classroom by April 6. Thank you for your kindness!  See flyer in folder today.

Questions to Ask:

-What is the fruit for the month of March? (faithfulness)

-Name something you learned about temperate forest.

-What are you doing for Lent?

 

Special Notes

-Star Dolphin for the week of March 9 is Tristan (add another day later)

Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day has been cancelled for next week.  There is no hot lunch on Thursday.

– There is no school this Friday, March 13.

-Report cards go home on March 19
