This week we studied the Bible lessons of “God Promises Abraham a Son” and “God Answers Abraham’s Prayer”. We learned that God keeps his promises and answers prayer. The first graders have also been working hard on their reading and writing skills. This past week we focused on words with inflected endings of –s and –ing. We read the story A Fox and a Kit. The students have also been working on classifying and writing sentences with the word structure of a subject noun and verb. We have been learning so much in first grade!
