A prayer from Pope Francis: 
 
O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Preventing accidents…

Please have your child practicing their own shoe laces. If they don’t have shoelace shoes, they can practice on your shoes. Once your child learns how to tie shoelaces and demonstrates it in class, they will get a shoe sheriff certificate. 

Here are some videos that may help you teach your child an important skill. Tying knots is not only important just for shoes but for many other projects your child may do in the future.

Book Report:

Due Monday December 16, 2019

Your child will read a book that is appropriate to their reading ability. For the entire book report it will be based on one book. The student will write the title and the author. They will draw a picture of their favorite part of the book. Just follow the directions from the two worksheets. On the blank piece of paper that was provided, students will write their heading on top.

Name #                                                           Date

St. Athanasius C.A.                                      Grade 1B

Then students will write a retelling of the story by providing the beginning, middle and ending of the story. Here are some sample questions that must be answered:

Beginning – Who are the characters? Where does it take place? 

Middle – What is happening with the character? Why?

End – How did the character solved the problem?

Students must use complete sentences and write neatly in the lines. Use proper sentence mechanisms, such as capital letter for the beginning of the sentence, capital letter for pronouns, end a sentence with a period. Students must use lower case letters when it is appropriate. Students must be able to sound out the words they don’t know how to spell. 

Grading: Students will be graded on neatness, sentence mechanisms, coherence in their writing and overall project. 

Goal: The purpose of these book reports to get the students reading independently with little help and be able to comprehend what they have read. The important parts of reading comprehension is to be able to retell a story in sequence with important details- such as characters and plot. 

I will try to do this as a monthly assignment. Even though it is only a monthly assignment you and your child should be reading everyday together and don’t forget to ask them to retell the story. Have them sound out words they don’t know. Some books is a lot to manage for kids to read in a whole day. Have them read a couple pages a day, even if the book has 12 pages.  You can do shared reading. Your child reads one page then you read one page and you continue reading it like that, back and forth. 

 

 

Shareable Google Drive folder link. I made sure it is not just for the St Athanasius G Suit users. 

Previous spelling words and HFW:

Spelling: like, spike, hide, bike, ride, mine, how there

Dear First Grade Families,
 
Welcome! My name is Mrs. Champion and I am so thrilled to be your new first grade teacher! It is going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures. I cannot wait to show you what this year has in store for us. I want to know all about you, but first, I’m going to tell you a few things about me.

I was born and raised in Queens, New York and I am the second youngest of FIVE! I have two elder sisters, Natalia and Paula, an older brother, Willy, and a younger sister, Alondra. We come from a big family in Colombia, and although my parents were born in Colombia, they now live in New York. The good news about this is that I’m bilingual and speak fluent Spanish. I can assist with Spanish-speaking parents!

After High School, I went to Queens College and graduated with a double major in Anthropology and Media Studies. I had a change of heart once I graduated and decided to get my Master’s of Science in Childhood Education from Hunter College. I’ve taught Kindergarten, 1st grade and 4th grade.

We’re going to have a fun year where we would embark in exhilarating lessons and we will be learning at the same time! My ultimate goal this year is to challenge you and have you give me your best effort in order to overcome any academic endeavors. But no need to worry, I will be there every step of the way, guiding you. I also wish to infuse a passion for learning to the extent that you don’t even realize you’re learning!

I am so excited to be your teacher and for you to be a part of this AWESOME class, 1B. This is going to be an awesome year!
