Religion:  This week the class will be learning about the Church year.  They will see that each season in the Church is represented by a different color.  The seasons are Ordinary Time (Green),  Advent and Lent (purple) and Christmas and Three Days (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and  Easter Time (White).

Second Steps:  This week the students will watch a video that has them taking a look at two children having two different reactions to the same experience.  The students will name the physical, verbal emotions that are being felt by each girl.

Reading:  We will continue to explore the story elements of Stellaluna and Dragons and Monsters focusing this week on similarities between the two stories.

Spelling:  Our spelling words contain the double ‘ff” blend.  Our words this week are drum, win,here, red, said, cuff, cliff, stiff, off, and puffin – a small sea bird.

Writing:  This week the students will be writing an acoustic poem about things they are thankful for.  As a class we brainstormed words that started with each letter of the word THANKFUL.  These are hanging in the hall ready to be enjoyed by everyone.
