Religion: Second Week of Advent   

Students will add another religious color page into their Jesus Journals honoring Mary. We will attend the all school Mass on Wednesday.  We will light our 2nd candle on our Advent wreath and share God's love with each other as we continue to fill Jesus' stocking with our good deeds towards others.

Henry is our super star this week and we will learn a little more about his likes and interests as he shares various things with us this week.


Language Arts: Please continue to read 20 minutes daily.  Invite your child to follow along with
you as you point to the words and help sound out the words. Also, keep practicing writing names
with one capital letter.

Tic, Tac, & Toc are the ninth Superkids.  We will brainstorm words that begin
with /t/, and practice writing both capital and lowercase Tt. Students are able to blend sounds together now using the following letters c, o, g, a, d, s, l, and i.  Students also enjoy the smart board activities and completed the fun learning opportunities in their workbooks.  Please continue to utilize the online activities. 

Math: Concepts this week- groups of 5 plus more to make combinations 6-10, data analysis, and reading calendars.


Social Studies: Christmas is a Christian holiday and students will explore Kwanzaa and Hanukkah as we discuss these religious celebrations from around the world.

Science: Weather unit: winter is upon us and how does that affect our every day lives? Why do we have 4 seasons and how do we need to prepare for the weather?
