We have completed the review of Welcome Back Superkids.  This week, we will be reviewing vowels, consonants, short vowel sounds, and the components of a complete sentence (capitalization of first word and end punctuation: period, question mark, exclamation point).  
**Test on Welcome Back Superkids on Friday.**


The children completed Chapter 1 on addition concepts and strategies.  They learned new vocabulary words:  add, sum, addend, addition sentence.  This week we will begin Chapter 2 on Subtraction Concepts.  The children will use pictures to show "taking from" and find differences.

The children will be learning about how Jesus grew up as part of a family.  They will learn about the Holy Family and discuss ways in which their family is like the Holy Family.

The children are writing about activities they like to do during the Fall.  They wrote about and decorated Autumn trees.  They also identified an apple tree in all four seasons.  We will be using the skills of a scientist when we observe an apple, make predictions and record the data.
