Class News March 2018


Believe it or not, Spring will be here in just a few weeks.  It is such a hopeful time of year, full of new life and growth.  The children have grown so much since September and I continue to enjoy watching them progress.

The week that we return from February break will include our STEM day.  The children worked in small groups to meet an engineering objective and together, they accomplished the task!  Come to our STEM night on Thursday and see what our class project involved.  It was a lot of fun, and I was impressed with the final outcome.

We will continue our observance of the season of Lent through class lessons as well as attending Stations of the Cross each Friday afternoon.  This is a way for all of us to remember the sacrificial love of Jesus, and spend some time reflecting on His precious gift of salvation to all who believe.

Forgiveness is this month's character trait which is ultimately demonstrated by Jesus on the cross, at which time, He asked forgiveness for those who were killing Him.  We have numerous opportunities in life to exercise forgiveness, and the children are very good about forgiving each other at school.

We will be finishing the alphabet letters of the week soon.  The children will continue to write sentences, engage in wordwork activities, practice spelling HFW and apply phonics to spelling in their journals.

Our new unit on rocks and minerals will be lots of fun as the children will learn about the three basic categories of rocks and get their hands on some real gems!  Children seem to naturally enjoy collecting and examining rocks, so I expect that they will enjoy the activities that I have planned for them.

We will end this month with Holy Week and Mrs. foran and I would like to wish you all a very blessed and happy Easter!
