Welcome to TERM TWO!  I hope everyone had a restful holiday and is ready to work.  Here is just a sample of what to look forward to.  

Religion:  We keep our theme"CARE FOR EVERYONE IN OUR COMMON HOME" in mind when we look at a variety of new topics.  We will take a close look at the Liturgical Year - examining the colours and focus of each church season.  We will also look at important feast days.  Our class will examine different Bible stories, looking at the people and lessons each present.  We will also learn about different sacramentals and how we use them, spending some quality time with the Rosary.     

Language Arts:  We are going to dive fully into cursive writing -- our goal is to be amazing handwriters in preparation for next year.   We continue to develop as independent readers and writers, working on developing strategies to help us improve while still "BUILDING STAMINA." Finally, we will begin a very exciting author study.  I hope you like riddles and puzzles and crazy detailed stories because you will have to use all of your literary and detective skills to successfully find the culprit or save the theives.  More information to follow...stay tuned.     

Math:  In Math, we are examing Number Sense - focusing on Place Value, Adding and Subtracting with and without regrouping and introducing multiplication. Please encourage your child to practice basic adding and subtracting as this will help them a lot.  Mathletics, www.freerice.com and the games found on the Links page are fun ways to practce these skills. 

Science: In Science, we will be examining THERMAL ENERGY.   Be ready for the SCIENTIFIC METHOD and hands on experiments.   

Social Studies: Social Studies has us examining our world with regards to community and diversity, and mapping.  We will be focusing on basic needs, and how environment, needs and cultures are linked.  

I am very excited about this new term.  I hope you are too! 

 

 

HOMEWORK TIP #1:  Please look carefully at the due dates for the following assignments.  A talented student will complete the ones that are due first before the other ones.  

HOMEWORK TIP #2: Remember to bring your assignments back to school even if they are not finished or due that particular day.  You never know when you may get free  or extra time in class to work on unfinished work.  If you have your assignments with you, you can use your class time wisely.
