November has been a busy month! The first graders are finishing up with learning and reviewing all the short vowel sounds before we move onto long vowel pairs and patterns. We've also worked on double final consonants, beginning blends, and ending blends. Beginning the second quarter means we are now in Science. We started the quarter by discussing what Scientists do and challenges they face when making discoveries or inventions. We also have had great discussions about science in view of the Bible. We call ourselves Christian scientists! We've enjoyed learning many new songs to sing in church over the next few weeks. Happy Thanksgiving!
