Math-We will begin Topic 7 this week. Topic 7 focuses on counting and identifying number patterns up to 120. This topic helps prepare the children for our upcoming study of place value.
Religion-We will move along to Chapter 11, The Holy Spirit, in our Call to Faith book. Our lessons will help us to understand the concept of the Holy Spirit as a guide in our lives. We will also learn about six gifts that the Holy Spirit gives us.
Social Studies-Our Patriotic Play preparations are underway! Our lessons throughout the month will identify important American patriots and key American symbols.
Notes To The Fabulous Folks
- Our Patriotic Play(American Symbols) practices are well underway! The children have been quite enthusiastic in learning the songs for the performance. Hopefully, you have all heard them singing a verse or two at home!
- Each student will have a role in our production of American Symbols. The speaking parts will be sent home this week. Please be on the lookout for your cild's script in their homework folder. Now is the time to begin to help your child memorize their line(s).
