The first few weeks of school is an adjustment. So we spend quite a bit of time on learning/practicing routines, working together in our workbooks, etc. so as to make everyone as comfortable as possible. We may continue this a bit into September.
Grammar this week focused on capitalization rules. We talked about when do we have to capitalize and why. We practiced editing a sentence too. In our Phonics unit, we begin with beginning, middle, and end sounds. We will continue with this skill into next week. Spelling focused on silent “b” words. Please practice daily so that your child is prepared for the test.
In Math we have been working on place value of 2-digit numbers, even/odd numbers, and values of digits in a 2-digit number. Your child should be practicing their math facts each night, even if it’s just for 2 minutes. Maybe you can do this while driving home or standing in line at the grocery store.
In Religion, we began to talk about how Jesus was not only human but divine. We listened to stories that showed how divine he was. We also began our celebration at 8 AM Mass. Parents remember to drop your child off at church EVERY Wednesday, unless there is an all school Mass on that day.
This week, we began looking at how Scientists work. We discussed various inquiry skills and tools used by scientists.
