In Religion, we’re wrapping up our study of the Mass. We’ll be reviewing the Mass, practicing how to receive Communion, and learning a special song in the two weeks leading up to Communion. Soon, we will begin to practice for our May Crowning Mass. This Mass is on Monday, May 8, and our Communicants will have a special part in it. More information will be sent home regarding First Communion and May Crowning.
We began our Poetry unit in grammar this week. We’ve learned about and written an autobiography poem and Haiku. Next week, we will write a sensory poem, as well as a shape poem. We continue to add endings to base words in Phonics. Remembering the rules can be difficult. So, we continue to practice, practice, practice. Cursive is going well, but the children have to often be reminded of proper sitting. They should also be taking their time when writing in cursive. It’s a new skill, and it should take time and practice.
We’re wrapping up time next week and will be moving on to measurement in standard units. We will first look at that, before moving on to measuring in the metric system. Believe it or not, we are only 3 chapters away from the end of the text!
The class really enjoys learning about plants and animals in their environments. We’ve learned about various adaptations of both. They were really intrigued by the Venus flytrap. The test will be next week, and then we move back to Social Studies.
- Your child’s First Communion banner is due next week. We have received so many already, and they are BEAUTIFUL! We will be hanging them up in the hallway for the school to enjoy, but they will be placed on your child’s pew for First Communion. Be sure to tell your family to look for it when they come to church.
