Happy Catholic Schools Week!
We have a fun week ahead to celebrate how great it is to go to a Catholic school! Don't forget that on Monday if your child wore their uniform to mass they can have free dress. Just fill out the free dress coupon that I will attach to the bottom of this post and turn it in to me. Tuesday the kids can wear crazy socks. Wednesday is red, white, and blue accessory day. Thursday is the volunteer breakfast to honor you all! Please join me and the rest of the staff to celebrate how much you do for our school. And Friday is field day so don't forget to have your child wear their tie-dye shirt! If your family made a no-sew blanket for our school-wide Faith in Action project you may return that any day this week as well. I will send out email reminders so that you don't miss out on all the fun!
In addition to all the fun activities planned here is what we will be learning in K1 this week:
Reading: Our new unit is all about bodies of water. We will hear two stories: One Dog Canoe and Atlantic. The six new sight words are: that, your, who, will, be, into. We will also be learning the /r/ sound. Please continue to practice the sight word list that will be sent home on Monday. I am so impressed with how well the kids are doing with those, so please keep up the great work!! Make sure you are also practicing the readers I send home. They are a great fluency practice and reinforcer of what we are doing in the classroom.
Math: We will finish up our chapter on counting on and counting back. The assessment will be on Monday. We also will begin and finish the next chapter that is a reteach on patterns.
Religion: This week's lesson is all about how Jesus is the perfect example of how we should live our lives. The student's will hear stories about saints who followed Jesus' example in the way they lived their lives. We will also be learning the Corporal Works of Mercy and will create a booklet to help us remember how we can follow Jesus' example.
Thanks and have a wonderful Catholic Schools Week!!
