March 9th - March 13th

This week we had science class with our Pre-Kindergarten friends!  We worked on Sink and Float!  It was so much fun testing different objects to see if it would sink or float. 

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, Mrs. Lewis shared her fantastic Irish Dancing skills with us during our community time!  She was amazing!  She taught the boys and girls some moves. 

I am very proud of the Kindergarten students.  We have been preparing for the Lenten Prayer Service which will be rescheduled for a later time.  Please have your child continue working on their lines.

Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy your family time!

This week the boys and girls worked on the digraph, sh. We created a list of words that begin and end with sh.  Then using the Montessori movable alphabet, we created phonetic sentences.

We continue to work on the Montessori Bank Game.  Some students are adding well into the hundreds!

We had a special treat for gym class this week!  Mrs. Mossor arranged to have the company, Speed Stacks come to Holy Child!  The boys and girls loved it!  Be sure to check out Mrs. Mossor's blog for more pictures, videos, and information!

February 24th - 28th

This week we celebrated Black History Month with fun activities planned by our Diversity Committee.  We danced to popular artists during the Motown Era, colored pictures of famous black Americans, and played a fun game of Red Light, Green Light.  Garrett Morgan, a famous black American invented the traffic light!

The students have been working on measurement.  We started off using paper clips and unifix cubes to measure small items in the classroom.  We introduced using a ruler to the nearest inch.  We had fun measuring items around the school.

A special thank you Vincent's mom for coming in to read to the class to celebrate Vincent's birthday!  We loved the story about dinosaurs and loved having a special treat for snack!  Rita's Water Ice!!
