First/Second Grade

1st & 2nd Graders
1st & 2nd Graders

We are so lucky to have such a school,
That supports multi-age groupings, oh, my, that is cool!
Group projects, partner work, and independent time,
Reading, writing, regrouping, and rhyme.

We love our new Superkids reading program for each grade,
We are taken into the lives of Ms. Blossom’s class and have made
Many strides in learning from possessives to prefixes
Listening to CD stories and songs that are remixes.

Goals in our world revolve around skills
Good readers and writers and able to count change and bills.
Regrouping with addition and subtraction are big this year,
The first graders are grasping this too, it is clear.

A big year of sacraments for the older ones,
First Reconciliation and Communion for these daughters and sons
Of people who put faith in their child’s education,
The gift of God’s grace at work in our nation.
