We will explore the family that Jesus grew up with, the Holy Family. Our families teach us to pray just like Jesus’s family did! We will focus on learning the Our Father prayer this quarter. Catholic Schools Week will be celebrated this quarter and we will learn how important St. Paul School is in our faith life. We will also enter the church season of Lent this quarter. We will focus our thoughts on preparing for Easter.
We will continue our phonics program, Saxon Phonics, by coding short vowel sounds to sound out CVC words. We continue to practice sight words and spend time each day becoming early readers and writers! This quarter we will celebrate a well-loved author, Dr. Suess!
We continue to use our daily math calendar to practice many, many math skills. This quarter, we focus on number sense with numbers 11-20 and 3-dimensional shapes. We will also celebrate the 100th day of school with many counting activities!
We will continue the Nancy Larson science program. Winter weather will spark our unit on hibernation and what animals do in the winter. We will also begin a unit on forces.
