Students and staff at Goliad Elementary School and Goliad Intermediate School are getting in the Christmas spirit and are ready for the holidays. Dec. 20 will be the last day of school and students will be released at noon.

First-grade news

The first-graders have written their letters to Santa. They will appear in the Advance-Guard soon.

They have been identifying consonant blend words, diagraphs, and silent “e” words. They also are learning about the forces in magnets and historical figures in social studies. They are practicing addition and subtraction facts. They will go to the high school on Dec. 14 for the play “A Charlie Brown Christmas!”

Second-grade news

Second-graders are off to a great start for the third six weeks. They have been working hard on reading strategies, fluency, basic math facts, coins, and much more.

In reading and language arts, students are reviewing r-controlled vowels and contractions. They are engaged in the poetry unit and have been creating their own poems, which include couplets and acrostic poems.

In math, students are able to carry out double-digit addition and subtraction problems. They are also able to identify, sort and count unlike groups of coins. They continue to work on basic math facts each day.

In social studies, they are learning about good citizenship in both the local community and the United States.

They are covering events including World War II and groups such as the WASPs. In science, students are learning how to classify resources including recyclable and non-recyclable materials. They can identify what is considered to be a man-made or natural resource as well.

Second-graders enjoyed the presentation of author Susan Stevens Crummel and their trip to Presidio La Bahia.
