PCA - Mr.

Vassilis 1st Grade Greek Class

December Newsletter

Hello, parents, and welcome to December at the Greek class in PCA! December is such a
beautiful month with all the name days, Christmas and end of year/New Year!

I am glad to share with you my satisfaction for the end of 1st trimester. I had the chance
to meet most of you in the Parent-Teacher Conferences. I enjoyed 1st graders every day
in their encounter with the Greek language and culture. I am sure we will keep up their
interest and speed up their pace of learning Greek in 2nd trimester!

The 3 weeks of December are focused around Christmas.

Grammar and Spelling of the month

Following our Curriculum Guide, the 2 letters of the month are: . Students are
learning to write, distinguish and make words starting from or having these 2 letters.

syllables and reading aloud their words. Acting-out words is also part of our everyday
activities to master vocabulary. They will combine them with , , , , , ,
learned so far to get some interesting words and phrases.

Friday 22nd is the Christmas program for PCA. 1st graders are practicing on their song
