Dear Parents,

We had another great week and continued to focus on our school year theme: “We are all called to be Peacemakers!” We attended a school wide assembly on this topic where students had the opportunity to view skits by middle school students on how to put their faith into action. Each classroom signed a “Peacemaker Pledge” and vowed to live out this virtue throughout the year.  Our pledge is hanging on the wall of our classroom!

In Religion, we continued to reflect on heaven, our true home that God has prepared for us someday, and we talked about how to grow in our relationship with God through a relationship with Jesus in prayer. Our prayers can help others in need. We all can reach out to others to be peacemakers.

In Math, we learned how to compare numbers as < less than, > greater than, or = equal to. We learned about Ali the Alligator that always wants to eat the biggest number. (An easy way to differentiate the < and > symbols). Students continued to practice filling in missing numbers on the number line, and practice one more and one less using the number line.

In Language Arts, students began reading in their differentiated small reading groups in the classroom. This way, each group is given on level reading and has the opportunity to meet with the teacher for guided reading. We are continuing Welcome Back Superkids, and are practicing short vowel sounds, and syllables. We learned about question marks, exclamation marks, and quotation marks this week. Students are practicing reading word families and have begun dictation on their white boards with markers to learn new patterns of spelling. Keep up the great reading practice at home!

In Science, the students learned about the sense of sight and had the opportunity to use magnifying glasses in science lab. They practiced classifying objects by shape. Students learned that our brains and our eyes work together to give us the sense of sight.

In Social Studies, we learned about how communities work and talked about how our school community works together to be kind to one another. We learned about famous U.S. Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I am impressed by how many of the students have had the opportunity to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C., and visit Mount Vernon, Washington’s home!

Take care and God bless you and your family. Enjoy your weekend!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Socarras
