Our assignment books have started to run out of pages. Each student now has a teal folder that will contain their homework assignments, important papers, and spelling words. These pages will change each week. Please continue to sign daily.
Today we were introduced to different instruments that we can play next year in elementary band. Mrs. Yealy and some student helpers showed us what each instrument sounded like and played us a sample song. We even got to try out these instruments on our own.
Today, we participated in our Race for Education. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help to support Saint Joseph School.
Catholic Schools Week starts this week. Today we got together with our prayer partners and created out own superheroes (out of only scrap paper). We had lots of creative ideas. Students had to use perspective in order for their superheroes to fit onto the door.
We had a very busy month in November. We celebrated our Fall Fundraiser winners. Also, we thanked our veterans by celebrating Mass and singing patriotic songs. As a class, we have been learning about weather and climate. We completed a project that had a build a house out of paper. Then, we had to make improvements to that house so that it did not blow away when the wind blew. Oh, what creative solutions we found! We have also been thinking about things that we are thankful for since Thanksgiving is coming We are a very thankful class. Lastly, we met with our prayer partners. They are learning about Ancient Egypt, and we joined them to make pyramids likes the Egyptians.
This week, we have met with our prayer partners. We were given the task of working together to create a boat to sail across the sea, just like Christopher Columbus. We had to brainstorm our ideas, figure out the cost of our ship, build the ship, and then sail across the sea. Some of our boats made the journey, but others did not.
Today, we completed our gas trap experiment, We have been talking in class about weather and clouds. In our experiment, we created clouds in a cup. We have learned that clouds are made mostly of water and that clouds can be formed inside of a cup.
We have had a wonderful first week back to school. We spent the week getting to know all of our classmates, new and old. We spent some time sharing all about ourselves with our class and learning our new classroom routine. There are three updates to our schedule this year. We will now have Art on Tuesdays, Spanish on Wednesdays, and Computer on Friday. Please have your child's art bag here on Tuesday, so that they are ready for Art class. Students may not have their assignment book home this weekend, that is because I told them there would be no homework this weekend. Please remember to sign the assignment tablet nightly.
