        Dear Parents,

It is certainly nice to see a bit of sunshine. The students are buzzing with spring fever and are thrilled to be able to play with soccer balls and skipping ropes.  This is an exciting month as the children begin to celebrate his/her First Communion!


   Curriculum

Language Arts

In class, the students continue to work hard on writing stories, recounts and letters. We continue with our Daily Language exercises, spelling and grammar lessons on a daily basis. Reading Response entries are completed well. Thank you for your help and encouragement to ensure your child reads each night.

Mathematics


     Our current unit of study in math is on Linear Mesaurement, Mass and Capacity. Students have been enjoying measuring things in the classroom with some non-standard units of measurement, along with rulers (cm) and meter sticks (m). We have also been learning how to measure the perimeter of objects using centimeters, and we have used non-standard units (index cards) to measure the area of desks and books in the classroom.

Science


      We have finished our unit on Air and Water in the Environment.
   Our next unit will be on Growth and Changes in Animals during the months of May/June.

Social Studies: 


       Our new unit of study is on
GLOBAL COMMUNITIES. 

     Students will describe some similarities and differences in the ways in which people in two or more communities in different parts of the world meet their needs and have adapted to the location, climate, and physical features of their regions. Students will compare select communities from around the world, including their own community, in terms of the lifestyles of people in those communities and some ways in which the people meet their needs.  

Religion

We continue to discuss the significance and importance of the Eucharist, as we work together through a booklet titled: Called to His Supper - a preparation for First Holy Communion. 

God Bless and Congratulations to all our students as they begin to celebrate his/her First Holy Communion.

Upcoming …                                

  • Week of April 23 - Class Earth Week Activities (Earth Day - April 22) 
  • P.A. Day on Friday, April 27, 2018 

Reminders

  • Please ensure that your child has an adequate supply of crayons or pencil crayons – I do not encourage sharing these as it becomes very loud in the classroom during work time and is time consuming. Most students need a refill of crayons and pencil crayons at this time. Please ask your child.

   Thank-you
