First Reconciliation is next !!
Students should be at the church no later than . Students need to dressed appropriately for mass (no jeans, holes in clothes, tank tops, etc.).
If your child is responsible for reading in mass, they will bring their reading home ( ) and should practice it each night.
Students will sit with their class at the front of the church, so please be aware of reserved signs on the first few pews of each side.
Please be sure to review the Act of Contrition and examination of conscience with your child prior to mass!
If you have any questions, please let one me know!
Ms. Amy and I are really looking forward to this big step in our 2nd graders lives of faith!

This past Halloween fell on a Friday and the kids came in fantastic costumes!! To make friday fun I created some Halloween themed lessons. One activity we did was a spooky noun sort. Students cut out nouns and glued them into the right column: person, place, thing, or animal.

During this year your child will participate in a year long genre inquiry unit. We began the year with the first piece of this unit: Fiction vs. Nonfiction. We learned the basics of both and created definitions for for types of text.
This unit will also focus on academic language and vocabulary , so when your child is reading ask questions using words like setting, character, plot, and theme.
We wrapped up the first mini unit with an assessment to demonstrate a basic understanding of fiction and nonfiction. Students were given a wide variety of texts and asked to find and record 5 fiction books and 5 nonfiction books.

This past week our classroom had big buddy time with the 8th graders! It was so fun! We made homemade silly putty and had a bit of a chemistry lesson.
Pour them together and immediately a reaction called polymerization occurs.....a solid forms! This solid is silly putty! Students need to mix the 2 solutions together and scoop out the solids.
