Last week we spent time talking about famous artists and we had so much fun painting! The artist we learned about was Claude Monet. It was wonderful to see the children's eyes light up when they saw what they had accomplished. We're keeping the painting a secret since it will be given to you Mom's for Mother's Day!!!
This week we'll start a new theme: Growing Up Healthy/Growing and Changing. We'll concentrate on learning how to be healthy, and learning how to take care of ourselves. We'll cover first aid, germs, eating healthy and exercise.
The letters we'll be working on this week are Aa - Ee review. Earth Day is April 22nd so we'll be talking all about how to keep the Earth healthy and also about recycling.
In our Handwriting Without Tears curriculum the focus will be on the letter X,x and the numbers 1 and 2.
In math this week the children will be given 3 different sized containers and they'll try to figure out which one holds more water. That should be fun (and messy!)
We'll be matching beginning sounds and in our Second Step curriculum the children will learn how to speak assertively.
Yesterday was First Holy Communion Mass at St. Patrick's Church and it was beautiful! We were able to have it indoor and it almost felt like old times except for the fact that the children had to wear masks with all their finery! Please join me in praying for these children who have taken a very special second step, and that they walk in the Lord's light forever.
