March

Here is what we're busy with this month:  

Reading: We are working on close reading and finding text evidence to help us answer questions. We are also working on making inferences.

Math: We are finishing up our Unit on Money and will be moving on to our next Unit on Surveys and Graphs. We will also continue to practice our basic addition and subtraction facts with our speed tests.  

Religion: Our Virtue of the Month is Mercy: Caring for those who suffer.  The saint of the month is St. John Vianney. After the students make their First Reconciliation, we will be talking about the season of Lent and learning more about the 7 Sacraments.

Writing: We are finishing up our informational reports and moving on to letter writing. We will be exchanging letters with our pen pals in Mrs. Gordon's 2nd grade class at Clarence Center Elementary. We will also start an exciting Flat Stanley project - keep an eye out for information to be sent home about that!

Social Studies: We will be learning about good & services, wants & needs and learning how to navigate around a neighborhood map.
