Class Notes

Reading/Language Arts
Our new story is That's What Leprechauns Do, by Eve Bunting.  We will work on story mapping, character traits and sequencing.
We will be practicing identifying and using collective nouns, and writing summaries of the story.

We are nearing the end of chapter 7 on time and money.  We will spend some time reviewing the main concepts of both to get ready for the test.  Children should be able to count mixed coins, add and subtract money, make change, and tell time to the hour, half hour, and 5 minutes.

We have begun preparing for and learning about Communion.  We will start chapter 14 on the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Social Studies
We are working on our government and symbols of our country.
