Week of October 7

Hello!

Classroom Updates: Fall is finally here and we are ready for it! We are doing math using apples and fall leaf counters and feeling pretty good about our early reading skills.  Our class has a fun way of remembering our spelling words too – by saying them all out loud we are able to hear the word and practice saying it while spelling it too! We’re continuing to learn about living things and will be learning more about what they need over the next few weeks.  In social studies, we’ve been talking about families and different traditions that families have. Our classmates shared beautiful posters and talked about their various family celebrations at home. #soblessed 

Our Faith: October is Rosary Month. We learned about the decades and how to say the other prayers, the Apostles Creed, the Glory Be & Oh my Jesus, (Our Father and Hail Mary we already know!)  This morning we

said 1 decade of the Joyful Mysteries and 2 of the students helped lead the prayer.  If you have a rosary at home share it with your child – It’s a beautiful prayer that really 

brings us closer to Christ through His mother.  Additionally it’s something we’ll be doing more throughout the month here culminating with the diocesan Rosary Rally at the end of the month!

What we’re reading: “Beautiful” by Stacy McAnulty; “The Pigeon has to go to School” by Mo Willems; “Tomorrow, I’ll be BRAVE” by Jessica Hische; “Lubna & Pebble” by Wendy Meddour & Daniel Egneus; “Sitting like a Saint: Catholic Mindfulness for Kids” by Dr Gregory Bottero & Barbra Bottero

Shout-out to everyone who has helped us with our classroom supplies so far! With cold and flu season coming in quick we’re still looking for… tissues, baby wipes, clorox (or similar wipes) and paper towels.  Of course we’re also reminding everyone to wash their hands as well! Thank you again! 

Regards,
