 Happy New Year 2019!!

 

 Thank you for all your help in making our Christmas activities such a success!!

 Polar Express was fun! The children (and teachers) enjoyed wearing pajamas, drinking hot chocolate, eating popcorn and enjoying the movie. The smart board added fun with games from the Polar Express.

In Religion we will understand that we learn about God with our families, friends and at school. The Kindergarten will be meeting with their Prayer Partners to celebrate the Feast of the Three Kings. We will also be preparing for Catholic Schools Week, January 27th through February 5th. This years theme is “Catholic Schools : Learn.Serve. Lead. Succeed.”

Math finds us closer to the 100th Day of School! Graphing and pictographs will include our favorite Super bowl team.  Continue counting by 1’s, 2’s, 10’s and adding 5’s to that list. Practicing our phone number and addresses. Continue AB, AAB and ABB patterns. Filling in number charts. 

  

Author studies will include Tomi dePaola, Lois Ehlert and Jan Brett (The Mitten, The Hat and Gingerbread Baby.)We will continue with our reading skills- beginning, middle and end sounds. The children will be able to understand the difference between fantasy and reality. We will continue to practice handwriting skills emphasizing correct pencil grip.

 

Social Studies continues our practice of Map reading skills. Time will be spent in learning that different environments have different attributes.

We will study important people in our country’s history. This month we will look at the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Science experiments are always fun at this time of the year. We will look at different forms of water: snow, ice and water vapor. We will examine living and non-living things.

 

God bless all our families for the New Year!! We look forward to sharing many new experiences together. Thank you for all your support.
