PHONICSWe will work with the digraph TH this week.

GRAMMAR: We will begin to look at Proper Nouns.


MATH:  We will continue with chapter 12: 2D Shapes. Over the next few weeks, that will be very busy with Christmas Pageant practices, we will work on chapters 11 and 12 which will cover geometry concepts. We will return to chapter 4 after the Christmas break.
**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night.

RELIGION: Our focus over the next few weeks will be practicing for the first grade Christmas Pageant. 

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
