Grade 1: Mrs. Gall

December!

Luke 1:30-31 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 
First grade is chock full of fun activities this month for both Advent and Christmas! We are collaborating on a Nativity bulletin board that will be proudly displayed in the hallway and creating a book showcasing the colors of the church year. We are in the process of writing a piece called "How-To Catch a Gingerbread Man" and we just finished designing our own Gingerbread people. Merry Christmas!

Spelling 

Why is it important to do one assignment a night?
By doing one spelling homework assignment per night, your child is building good study habits. He/she is learning to set aside time everyday to improve academically and getting prolonged exposure to content being learned. If all assignments are completed in one night, the habit of “cramming” is reinforced.

(Notebook to be handed in every Friday with all the week's assignments completed)
: 4 assignments this week! Please take a sample quiz on Thursday night to make sure you have every word memorized. You have your Spelling City log-in information in your Take-Home folder, so work on that at least 20 minutes a week for spelling and vocabulary. Please note: your spelling list will change every week but vocabulary list changes according to the unit we are on.

Reading: read for 10 or more minutes with a family member or to a pet/stuffed animal. See how many different people you can read with this week. Remember to always keep it fun and worry free!

Prayer: take time to connect with God through prayer. The prayer for this month is the Apostles' Creed. Be sure to say it at least once a day!

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
He descended into hell;
on the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
