Class News


Religion - This week we will focus on how Jesus shows us His Father's love by giving us the gift of Grace. The class will discuss how we need God's gift of Grace to help us to follow Jesus and remain close to Him. Please remember to pray one Hail Mary each night to the Blessed Mother Mary, our class saint.

Math - We will continue explore the strategies of addition by adding 3 digits to find a sum and solving number sentences. A quiz on these addition strategies as well as the strategies of counting on, using doubles to find sums, and making a ten, will be given on Wednesday. Math homework will be given from Monday through Thursday of this week.

ELA - This week, we will explore the idea of how families around the world are the same and different by reading the stories, "Maria Celebrates Brazil" and "The Big Red Lollipop". The class will also work on identifying characters, settings, and events in stories and identifying the elements of realistic fiction. In Phonics, the children will identify the three spellings of the /k/ sound, which include "c,k,ck" and review the closed syllable concept. Please see the phonics packet that was sent home last Monday regarding this topic. It is important that the children practice their Phonics skills nightly in order to meet with success in this area.  A list of 15 spelling words will be given on Monday and can be found in the Green Notebook. A spelling test with dictation sentences will be administered on Friday. Please review all spelling words nightly with your child. In Grammar, we will distinguish between exclamation and command sentences and put this concept into action when we create our sensory poems.

Science - Last week we began our unit on animals by exploring the characteristics of mammals. This week, the class will learn about birds and compare and contrast their characteristics with those of mammals. Notes on these topics can be found in the Blue Notebook.
