Dear Parents of these Wonderful Grade Ones and Terrific Grade Twos!

As we continue to enjoy the Easter season, we recognize the early signs that Spring has arrived!  Highlights from March include Carnaval/Spirit Week, our Shrove Tuesday breakfast, and the Ash Wednesday liturgy.

The students did a good job preparing their hearts during Lent though our daily Lentopoly challenges. They have been strengthening their appreciation of the events leading up to the resurrection through poems, bible readings and the story of Benjamin and his treasure box. 

You will be happy to know your children are also becoming amazing stewards of the Earth by composting in the classroom, working toward decreasing the amount of garbage we generate.

Looking forward to this month in: 

Religion, we will continue to deepen our understanding of Easter, throughout these days following the resurrection of our Saviour, focusing on growing closer to God.

Math, we will finish our unit on Measurement and begin to apply our daily practise of adding and subtracting numbers. We will continue with our "Number Talks" and estimating amounts prior to counting to confirm.

Language, students are adding more detail to develop their ideas and add interest for the reader.  The focus continues to be on organizing their thoughts, then editing for capitals, periods and misspelled words. Readers' Theatre is going well, however it is frustrating for the students when members are unprepared.  Their classroom practise time ends up being spent helping their peer read the part, rather than working on reading together as a group.

Science, the Grade Ones are continuing with "Energy in our Lives", while the Grade Twos are continuing with "Movement".

Social Studies, we will continue to investigate local and global communities.  

Thank you for investing your time supporting the children as they work through their scripts nightly and Bookbag books weekly.  It is greatly appreciated!

Yours in learning,

K. Lapierre
