First Grade

Hello! My name is Miss Vargas and I will be teaching first grade at Our Lady of Victory Catholic School this year. I am so excited to learn and grow with my students.


Friday, April 3rd

Happy Friday, Parents, and Students! Today is our last day before spring break! We will not be having a zoom call today, but I will be putting a video out this afternoon of a read-aloud and some math.

Reading:
I would like students to reread “Play Ball” which can be found on the Superkids online portal. After they read it, I would like for students to complete word workbook pg. 59.
Students should share the story they wrote with someone today.

Math:

We are working on the same lesson as yesterday, but I would like students to complete the homework from this lesson. If they do not have a paper copy, they can do the work on the whiteboard.

Social Studies: Review the pamphlet on being a good citizen and create a list of 3 ways we can be a good citizen.

Religion: Mass

PE: PE with Joe puts out daily videos for PE. These are a great way to get up and moving during this time.

Thursday, April 2nd

Good Morning, Parents and Students!
Today we have a Zoom call at 9:30! I am so excited to see you there! If you are unable to make it, I will be recording a video lesson that will be shared this afternoon.

Reading
Word Workbook pages 56-57 and 3 IXL activities.
I would like for students to read “The Big Fall” which can be found on our class story.

Math:

We will be doing the problem set from this lesson today if you have the packet. If you do not have the packet, please work on IXL (2-3 activities) A short lesson on this topic will be included in the video this afternoon.

Religion: I would like for students to continue to pray for their prayer partners and for the world. In addition to this, I would like students to practice being helpful by doing at least 1 random act of kindness today. This can be as simple as helping around the house or doing a chore or homework without being asked to.

Science: I would like for students to review the pamphlet on water and complete the last page of the Social Studies packet. It is a sorting activity of fresh vs. saltwater animals. If students would like they may draw additional animals that can be found in fresh and saltwater.

Music: Mr. Z has uploaded a lesson for our class! https://sites.google.com/ymf.org/ymfonlinemusicacademy/our-lady-of-victory/olv-1st-grade/fish-cupcakes?authuser=0
