     Religion: Super Star Peyton, All School Mass ~ Feast of Saint Joseph & Holy Week Preparation

        By the end of the week, students should be able to identify who Saint Joseph was and how               

        important he was in shaping Jesus' life.  We celebrate his Feast Day with All School Mass.  Because

        our Spring Break falls during Holy Week, we will learn about Jesus' last days on Earth.



Language Arts: Letter Mm/m/

Students will read "The Boss" and complete a reading comprehension skills page.  Being able to recall important details such as setting and purpose can help the students understand character development, too. We will brainstorm words that begin with /m/ latter in the week as we transition from letter Nn to Mm.  The students have lots of printing practice each week and soon they will be printing their writing pieces for our all school literacy night "Cartonera Project."

Please continue to read 20 minutes and practice your reading skills.

Math: Sides, corners/angles and more 2 dimensional observations of shapes, continued practice with numeral writing, and simple addition and subtraction. Grouping numbers 1-10 and number sequence. Students will also be taking the math assessment for Unit 2.


Science/Social Studies: Weather: As we moved our clocks ahead this weekend we are reminded of Daylight Savings Time.  In preparation for Spring, we utilize the warmth of sunlight to melt the snow in Minnesota and bring lightness when most needed.  The Spring Equinox is March 20, the actual first day of Spring.  However, Minnesota can be unique by having snow fall even in the month of May.  Students will enjoy continuing to notice different clouds and what their effect will have on our Minnesota weather. 


What clouds are wispy, high in the sky, and may indicate bad weather is approaching? Cirrus clouds

What clouds blanket the sky and can indicate storms? Stratus clouds

What clouds look like a gigantic cotton balls and can create shapes? Cumulus clouds
