We learned a lot about Martin Luther King, Jr. over the past few weeks. We talked often about how he dreamt of something that would make the world a much better place, and then he acted on that dream. The first graders each came up with a dream of their own to make the world a better place. Also, below are pictures of some morning activities and some of the love monsters the students made in art class.
Catholic Schools Week is this week. Here are some of the fun things to remember:
Monday, Feb. 2: Wear spirit wear or gym uniform
Tuesday, Feb. 3: Pajama Day; HSA will provide soft pretzels to students; No homework!
Wednesday, Feb. 4: Heroes wear many hats - wear a hat with your gym uniform; Kid's Heart Challenge; Truck Convoy
Thursday, Feb. 5: Team day - wear a jersey or your favorite team's colors
Friday, Feb. 6: Wacky Dress Day - Look silly!; Bingo party
Our students have returned after break and jumped right back into learning! We are focusing on informational texts and finding text evidence in reading. In math, the students are learning place value, which helps students with adding, subtracting, and understanding numbers with two or more digits. We have been playing games and using money and manipulatives to help it be less abstract. We are learning more digraphs and working on two syllable words with long vowels in phonics and words with long vowel/sneaky e combinations in spelling. We are learning about how Jesus chose the apostles and how we should be apostles, spreading God's good news through our words and actions in religion. Below are pictures including Christmas fun and our students reading at Mass.
