February 2018

Dear Parent(s),

This month for our kindergarten friends we will enjoy Valentines Day, which also coincides with Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.  We will discuss Lent leading to Easter and what it means to us as Catholic Christians.   

Happy February to our great Grade Ones:

Your children continue to progress with their reading and writing, thank you very much for your home support; together we help our children grow.

Looking forward to February in:

Religion:  we are nearing the end of Ordinary time in the Church year and on Ash Wednesday, February 14 we will begin preparations for the Lenten season which will lead us to Easter

Math:  we will focus on 2-D and 3-D geometry

Science: we will begin studying Energy, its sources and uses

Social Studies:  we are beginning to learn about how to read maps and the geography of where we live, my place in Canada

Language:  we continue to focus on organizing our thoughts for writing using:  first, next, then and finally.   Students are being encouraged to write 3 or 4 sentences to express themselves

Spelling:  please note on the website there are spelling words for two weeks in advance in case you like to get a jumpstart on the next weeks words

Report cards will be sent home on Wednesday, February 21.

Blessings,

Mrs. M-H Bekking
