February

This month we are learning more about business and economics with Junior Achievement.  We also have an exciting STREAM partnership: Learning about microbes with Mrs. Tooley, an actual scientist!  Finally, we are preparing for our First Reconciliation, which is coming up at the beginning of March.

Here's what else we're busy with this month:  

Reading: We are starting a new SUPER Magazine--Go, Go, Go!

Math: We are finishing up adding three-digit numbers with regrouping and then starting subtracting three-digit numbers with regrouping.  Remember to log in to First in Math at home to practice your math facts!   

Religion: Our Virtue of the Month is honesty--being trustworthy and true.  The saints for the month are Blesseds Jacinta and Francesco Marto.  We also are busy preparing for our First Reconciliation.

Writing: We are working on our Winter Opinion Writing pieces.  We also wrote letters to our pen pals at SS Peter and Paul School, and will be writing back soon!

Social Studies: We are starting working on our Social Studies Unit on Maps and Geography!
