Mrs. Cincilla’s News and Notes Week of 11.4.19

LOOKING BACK AT LAST WEEK

RELIGION – We learned that All Saints Day is a special day that the Church has set aside to honor all of the saints in heaven.

VIRTUE OF THE MONTH: Stewardship – Returning to God the first fruits of your time, talent, and treasure.

SAINT OF THE MONTH: St. Elizabeth of Hungary

MATH –We identified, classified, and described plane shapes. Vocabulary this week included: circle, square, triangle, rectangle, side, corner, sort, color, alike, different, shape, and size.

LANGUAGE ARTS – In Unit 4, Lesson 1 we isolated sounds in words and generated words that contain the sound of er, spelled er, ir, ur and ear. We also learned to blend, spell and read words that contain the sound of ng, spelled ng. Our Read Aloud stories this week were Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie and Me and My Shadow by Amy Too. Reading skills that we worked on included: visualizing and summarizing. We learned that an exclamatory sentence tells about a person who is surprised or shows excitement. This kind of sentence ends with an exclamation point. We read decodable books 49-53 and they went home. I hope they continue to read them to you at home!

HANDWRITING – We practiced writing upper and lower case letter D.
