Grade 1: Mrs. Gall

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood”

Isaiah 58:6-7

Spelling 

(Notebook to be handed in every Friday with all the week's assignments completed): No spelling this week. Please take a sample quiz on Thursday night to make sure you have every word memorized, give extra study time to words you have difficulty with. We are learning long o made with o, oe, oa and ow. 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. Please note: your spelling list will change every week.
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.

Reading

Read for 20 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 Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

and of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation,

he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit

he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered, died, and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in fulfillment of the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge

the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son he

is worshipped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic

and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism

for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come.
Amen.
