Look What's Going on in October  



October is the month of the rosary.  We will be learning about and praying a few decades of the rosary.  We’ll also be learning about Saints Francis, Faustina and Teresa of Avila.  The chapters in the religion book will be about Mary, the Holy Spirit and the church.



We just started memorizing the doubles facts. The kids have the first six facts down very well.  We’ll be practicing doubles for another week or so, then we’ll move on to ‘plus ones’.  


 Social Studies

We learned about Johnny Appleseed and will compare him to St. Francis.  We will also continue learning about neighborhoods, communities and community leaders. 


Language Arts

We will be reading fiction and nonfiction stories, and poetry. 
We’ll also be discussing story elements such as setting, characters, and plot, fiction and nonfiction. In phonics we’ll be reviewing short and long vowels, blends, and syllables. The children have been practicing some of the jingles in Shurley English.  We’ve learned about nouns, verbs, and adverbs, and will add adjectives this month.
