Spring, spring is coming soon,
Grass is green, and flowers bloom,
Birds returning from the south,
Bees are buzzing all about,
Leaves are budding everywhere,
Spring, spring is finally here!
Here's a peek at some of what we will be learning about :
Religion- Our focus will be on Jesus as the Light of the World, what it means to receive the light of Christ. We will read about and discuss what we can do to be peacemakers, that the choices we make can show our love for God, that God is ALWAYS ready to forgive us, and the importance of the Sacrament of Penance. Then we will continue to focus on The Three Days and Easter. Students will begin leading our class in praying the rosary. In order to do this they will need to know what prayer is said on each bead and the crucifix.
Phonics- I will introduce -r blends in context, we will identify and recognize initial and final blends, and we will read and write High Frequency Words. Then, we will read and discuss nonfiction text, review digraphs sh, ch, wh, th, ck, and continue to review r-controlled vowels ar, er, ir, ur.
Math- I will introduce two digit addition and subtraction without regrouping. We will continue to strengthen on our basic facts, by playing Math Olympics, and having Math Mania Mondays.
Reading/English/Handwriting- This month we will continue to recognize and identify -r controlled vowels, ar, er, ir, ur. We will read and write, High Frequency Words, contractions, review verbs, am, is, are, was, and were, comparative endings -er, -est, author's purpose, draw conclusions, consonant pattern -dge and vowel digraphs ai, ay. We will continue to focus on fact and opinions of a story. The stories we will read this month will be a literary nonfiction, and a drama. As always we will be working on our handwriting skills, building letter formation, neatness and just doing OUR very best work.
Science/Social Studies- We will explore light, wildlife, and earth in science. And in Social Studies we will focus on saints, and wants vs. needs.
Have an Amazing April !!
