Happy first Sunday of Advent! It is crazy to believe that we are already in December and just three short weeks away from being halfway through the school year. Time really does fly when you are having fun!! A few notes about this week:
1. Our school Advent Wreath blessing will be at 7:55 am on Monday, immediately following Courtyard Prayer. Please feel free to join us to kick off the Advent season with our community.
2. This Friday is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, which is a holy day of obligation. That means our school mass will not be on Wednesday but rather on Friday at 10 am. Please make note of this if you were planning on attending school mass this week.
3. Our class won a party for collecting the most boxtops for the first half of the year! We will be having this party on Wednesday of this week. Our special treat will be a pizza lunch so you do not need to pack your child a lunch on this day. If your child does not like pizza or you would rather they not eat the pizza please feel free to send in a lunch instead. They are looking forward to this fun reward!
Here is what we will be working on in our classroom this week:
Reading: This week's lesson is about Animal Bodies. The students will hear the stories A Zebra's World and What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? Our sound is /f/ and our Alphafriends name is Fifi Fish. The sight words we will work on are "you" and "what."
Math: We will wrap up our chapter on numbers to 100 this week. The students will review concepts through hands on math centers and small group work with Mrs. Foley and myself. They will be assessed on this chapter at the end of the week.
Religion: We will discuss the second week of Advent in our class this week. The students will hear the story of Mary saying "yes" to God. We also will celebrate St. Nicholas Day on Wednesday.
Thank you and have a great week!
