CONGRATULATIONS TO
BRODY HOFFMAN &
JACLYN CREEGAN ON THE RECEPTION OF THEIR FIRST HOLY COMMUNION THIS WEEKEND!!!! 

 What's new during the Week of April 16th:


RELIGION:

This week we will begin Chapter 7 in our Eucharist Book and will focus on the part of Mass called the The Communion Rite.  The children will learn how the early Christians followed Jesus' words of the Last Supper and remembered Him in the celebration of Mass.  We  will continue to use unconsecrated hosts to practice with the children how to receive Jesus with respect.

Reminder:  This Wednesday a letter will be sent home regarding the May Crowning & Communion Breakfast.  Please return the tear off on page 2 and any required fees as soon as possible so that purchases for the needed materials may begin.  Thank you!

Math:

We will finish Ch. 8 this week as we cover finding number patterns through problem solving, finding sums of equal numbers, and calculating the area of a triangle.  A test is planned for Friday, 4/20.  

ELA

Reading:

This week's Essential Question, "What do heroes do?", will be explored in our two reading selections about Cesar Chavez and Bessie Coleman, two famous Americans.  

Phonics:


Please look for the handout covering Unit 13, which explains our next double vowel pairs, "oa", "oe", and "ow".  A quiz is planned for Thursday, 4/19. 

Grammar:


Our study of pronouns continues as the students learn how to use possessive pronouns in their writing. 

Writing:

The students will use the photos they brought to school depicting a family tradition and write a descriptive paragraph about their family's custom.  This activity will help them relate what they are learning in our S.S. unit on culture.  

Social Studies:

The children will explore the concepts of culture and cultural diversity as we learn about some of the various cultures of the world and examine customs and traditions. 

Regards,

Jeanne Ciano

Reminder: This Thursday is a half day; please join us as Gr. 1 hosts Mass at 9:00 am!
