Welcome Back!!

Welcome to the new school year!  It has been such a joy getting to know each and every one of the students so far.  I'm excited for all the new school year will bring!   

Here's what we're up to this month:  

Reading: Starting our Superkids Reading Program, and getting started with The Daily 5!

Math: Intro to Math Centers, along with a review of addition and subtraction concepts.  

Religion: We will be reading and talking about St. Teresa of Calcutta, as well as our Virtue of the Month: Faith.  We will be learning about a different virtue each month this year.  Then we will be learning about God's gift of creation.

Science: We will be starting a Unit on Matter!
