Happy Catholic School’s Week.
The children enjoyed the visit from the Cape May County Zoo today for Student Appreciation Day.
Tomorrow is a free dress down day and the children will be making a wish list at the Book Fair. Their 8th-grade buddies will be helping them fill out the list when they visit. The book fair is open to students and parents tomorrow night from 6:00-7:30 pm if you would like to bring your child. I visited today and there are many good choices.
Thursday the children will be attending the talent show in the afternoon and we will be attending Mass on Friday. Dismissal is at 12:00 pm on Friday.
Later in the week, the children will be introduced to the letter U and you can begin using the Big Book of Blending up to and including letter h this week. I would like you to wait until next week to begin the letter u. Please continue to read with your child. I will send home fluency drills that your children have been working on by the end of the week. I am sure they will be happy to read for you so make sure you ask them. I time them for one minute and they love it.
We are exploring subtraction in math right now and you can work up to the end of chapter 6 in the workbook.
We are completing our unit on God made us special in religion. Looking ahead to Valentine’s Day, we will be doing a Valentine exchange on the 14th. Please do not put any recipients names on cards, please only have your child sign his or her own name. I will have the children sit with a bag and hand out valentines to each classmate so that they can thank one another.
We have 26 children in our class.
Have a great week.
