June

Happy June!  As June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we will be talking about the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as well as the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We will also be going on a field trip to the Science Museum as a class on Thursday, June 14th!   

Here's what else we're up to this month:  

Reading: We have been SO enjoying getting to know the Superkids all year during our Reading and Phonics time!  We also are reading about many exciting things through our Scholastic News issues and SUPER Magazine.  Please ensure that your child is also reading at home; logging onto Raz Kids is a great way to get some quality reading time at their reading level!

Math: We are learning all about measurement this month, as well as a little geometry!  Please make sure to keep practicing math facts with your child at home.  

Religion: We will be learning about the Mass and its two main parts: The Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Writing: We are doing a writing activity reflecting on all that we've learned this year, as well as doing some writing projects in Science and Social Studies.

Science/Social Studies: We are learning all about lanforms, natural resources, and the geography of our very own United States!  We also will be continuing to infuse Science and Social Studies into our Reading instruction.
