January 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and wonderful holiday with your family and friends! Happy New Year to you all, and I wish you many blessings for 2018! 

Next week, our spelling program will begin. Students write their spelling words in their agenda weekly and we do a spelling activity in class to practice. Please take the time to ensure your child knows how to spell these high frequency words to assist in daily writing.  Our spelling quiz will be every Friday and if necessary on Thursday. Success will be noted in the report card under the categories of Language Homework Completion.

The following is a list of general learning areas for the month of January. 

Religion/Family Life: On-going praying and special intentions, continuing to remember Jesus is always with us 

Language: Poems of the Week, daily reading and writing, reading responses, group discussions, show and share, printing, word families and punctuation. 

Math: Daily weather and calendar, Data Management and 3D shapes

Science: on-going hibernation and human body units. Materials objects and structures 

Social Studies: Our school community, neighbourhood buildings and mapping skills, as well as creating a map of our bedroom. 

Please continue to read a variety of literature with your child daily.  This will increase fluency and confidence.  Talking with your child about  books will further support skills and abilities.  

Thank you for your continued support.  

Yours in Catholic Education,

Ms. Moore
