Here’s What’s Happening in the month of December:
Children have been having a special visitor on Tuesdays! His name is Fr. Jerry, the pastor of St. Raphael’s Church! He has been talking to the children about Baptism and has included his hobby of magic into each of his discussions! The children are very happy to see him and hear what he has to say and do!
The children are getting ready to begin writing in script and in pen for most of their work! They are very excited to start using erasable pens!
We are now working on division in math. We are seeing how is it very much related to multiplication and the children are able to answer rather quickly!
The children are very busy getting ready for the Christmas Show. It is on Friday, Dec. 19th at 7pm. They will be singing very loud for all to hear!
The children are continuing to work on their writing and reading skills. They are beginning to write more detailed paragraphs and read more confidently in class! They are trying their best to work together and share ideas when completing their work.
In social studies children will begin a class project of creating a brochure describing one of the five regions of the US. They will be working on including information of states within the region they are doing. They will be working on finding information in computer class.
In science class, the children are learning about ecosystems. We are discussing how animals and plants depend on each other to live. We are discussing what may happen if people and/or animals do not work together. The children have all agreed that everyone needs to help and work together in an ecosystem and well as everyday life!
Children can bring in Christmas Cards and a boy/girl gift to be given in class by Dec. 19th. We will have a class party on Dec. 23rd.
Thank you everyone for working hard and doing a good job! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Enjoy Christmas vacation with family and friends! Eat plenty, relax and enjoy the holiday season! See everyone on January 5th, 2015 when we return from Christmas vacation!
