Dear Families, 

I hope that everyone enjoyed the long weekend and the first snow of the season!  It was great meeting with all of you last week.  It is always great to see you, but especially when there is so much good news to share about your children!  This week we are looking forward to our trip to see The Star movie.  We hope that it will be a great reminder of how important it is to share acts of kindness, especially during Advent.

This week we will begin reading  The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  The children will be working on some activities that combine reading, writing, and grammar skills that have been learned over the past few months.  They will start off by focusing on the characters and finding actions that help to show the personalities of the characters.

In math this week, the children will learn to use the properties of multiplication and other patterns to write rules and find unknown factors.  They will also learn to multiply with multiples of ten.  In addition to the new lessons, it is very important for all of the children to be practicing their multiplication facts every day.  We will be having surprise quizzes on the facts regularly!

In social studies we will begin learning about the pioneers and the westward movement.  The children will be learning about the reasons why people started moving west and what life was like when they got there.  We will compare the pioneers to the colonists.

Finally, in religion we will have a visit from Fr. Brian.  We are grateful that he makes time to come spend time with our class every month.  Later in the week we will be working on Nativity scenes which we will be giving the kindergartners as a gift.  Please be sure to bring in a shoebox for this project!

I hope that everyone has a great week!
