Class News


Religion - This week we will begin our preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation! The children will receive their Reconciliation Books in class on Monday and will be focusing on the lessons in Chapter 1. We will be discussing how we can be friends with God. The class will recall the story of Adam and Eve as they learn about Original Sin and the roles that the prophets and Mary played in fulfilling God's Promise to send a Savior to free us from Original Sin. 
Each night, the Reconciliation Book will be sent home so that the children can review the lesson of the day with their parents. Please set time aside to go over the lessons with your child so that they can share with you all that they are learning about while preparing for this beautiful sacrament.
Please remember to pray one Hail Mary each night to the Blessed Mother Mary, our class saint.

Math - We will continue with our unit on measurement and will acquaint ourselves with the concepts of relating inches, feet, and yards, using strategies to solve problems involving measurement, and learning the customary tools used for measuring centimeters and meters. Please utilize the connected website for review work and activities related to this chapter. Math homework will be given from Monday through Thursday of this week.

ELA - The class will continue to take a break from their readers while they explore the idea of how friends help each other by concluding their book study of the children's classic "Frog and Toad Are Friends". The children will use this book to explore the various elements that are contained in a fiction story. In Phonics, the children will review the closed exception syllable type. Please see the phonics packet that was sent home last week 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 complete our work on expanding and combining sentences.

Science -  This week, the class will review the vertebrate animal groups in preparation for their Science Test on Wednesday, Oct. 25. A take home quiz will be given out this Thursday and is to be returned on Friday. Notes found in the Blue Notebook should be used to answer the quiz questions.
