I'm sorry that I didn't blog last week but we had to put our totally loved German Shepherd, Levi to sleep and I took it really hard! I'm feeling better now but miss him terribly!
This new month of March is a wonderfully faith filled month as we are in the season of Lent. The children are learning (as gently as possible) the significance of what Lent means to us. Ask your children how long Lent is and they can tell you. We go over the Stations Of The Cross every day and they know what each station means. I have a board that I made that has visual clues to what each station represents. For example, there are purple band-aids when Jesus fell each time, I have a picture of Jesus's face on a cloth that represents when Veronica wiped the face of Jesus and so on. Your children are amazing!
The theme we're in is called "Imagine It Make It/Construction Zone." The children will be making a VERY special item using wood and stain and a hammer and nail. Can you guess what it is? In handwriting Without Tears we'll be working on diagonal lines letters Kk and Hh. We'll also work on triangle and diamond shapes, beginning sounds, letter sound patterns and in Second Step we'll concentrate on "Inviting To Play".
I'm very excited about the Parent/Teacher Conferences this week! I had one on Friday and it didn't work out so well but we did end up having a great phone call conference! Please be flexible with me since I'm computer challenged!
Let's talk about our class Auction donation!!! WoW!!! It turned out amazing!!! Thank you all so much for your donations! You can't really see it when you look at it but we all put our handprints that were turned into fish on the towel! Happy bidding! You know I'll be bidding too!
