Classroom Happenings

  Dear Parents,

    Welcome back, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Spring Break.

    We welcome May with great delight! Hopefully warm, sunny days are ahead for all of us to enjoy.  The children are having a wonderful time playing and running outside every day. 

    The world outside our classroom seems about to burst into bloom. For the next few weeks, we will be learning about the changes that take place when winter turns to Spring and how these changes affect plants and animals. We will be taking walks around the school and church to observe the changes taking place around our school and church - trees starting to bud and flowers starting to bloom.

MAY BIRTHDAYS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Landon Gates (May 22) and Liam Juston (May 24).


 The month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Mother. We will be talking about Jesus as a little boy and how he respected his mother and father.  Our religion lesson will work right into Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

   We will discuss how Jesus loved and helped his parents and how he wants us to be loving and helpful to our parents and to appreciate all the many things our parents do for us each and every day.


 We will  continue  to work on our printing and counting  numbers 1 -20 in our Beary Special Math Book.

  We will continue to work on our math concepts of more or less, patterns, sorting and graphing .


during the month of April, we will be learning about air, we will be experimenting with different ways to move test objects with air. We will use our breath first  to move an object then we will blow air through a straw and compare the methods and decide which one works best. We will be making predictions and using our graph skills for these experiments.  The children will be learning that when air is forced through a straw, it moves quickly and has strength. Air has the power to move lightweight objects.



We will be learning the beginning sounds and letters of U, V, W and X. We will also be practicing our printing skills (U, V, W and X). We will continue to work on our rhyming  skills, we are having a great time making up silly rhyming words.
