                             What's Happening in Class

We are continuing to work on Chapter 5 , how addition and subtraction are related. Please continue to practice doubles facts, and addition facts.
Please visit the IXL website. The highlighted sections are skills we have been learning in school. You may also explore other areas! 
Dice and Card Games to play will be attached to the back page of their blue notebooks for continued practice with basic facts and doubles.

We will be reading "The Big Race" with a focus on cause and effect relationships.
Our spelling words focus on the  "long a"  vowel  sound.Ask about "magic e" and "two vowels walking"
In our writing, our focus is still on complete sentences with proper punctuation, capitalization, and complete thoughts. 
We are also learning about synonyms, homophones , and common and proper nouns.

 We are continually learning how we can grow as disciples of Jesus.  We continue to practice how we can put God first through kind acts and words. We will be learning about the Seven Sacraments

Our topics for Science this month are healthy habits, the brain, and our five senses.

In Social Studies, we will be working with directions  and finding things on maps.
