May News


In Reading, we are wrapping up the year with our last unit. We will be reading the chapter book Horrible Harry and the Ant Invasion. To go along with the story, we will be creating our own insect and writing a descriptive paragraph. The students will share their insect and paragraph with the class. We will also be reading Flat Stanley as a class and completing a weekend journal to go along with the story.

During Religion, we are working on unit 5 called We Go In Peace.

The students are looking forward to receiving the Eucharist at our school Masses. We hope you find this also enriches your family experience as you attend weekend liturgies with your child.

In Math we will be ending the year with Chapter 11 – Geometry and Fraction Concepts. We will also continue to build on our math skills from the year. Please review the following skills with your child at home during your nightly homework time: Addition and subtraction with and without regrouping when carrying over the ten, addition and subtraction facts through 18, telling time to the 5 minute intervals, counting money, and measurement. Please use homework time to continually practice these skills. You may want to check out this math web-site for fact review: We think the students may enjoy the games and review on this site.

We are looking forward to visiting Greenacres on Wednesday, May 10th (Mrs. Lecher going in the AM and Miss Griffiths going in the PM). Our experience will be hands on so the children will take hikes, and learn about plants and insects in their natural habitat.

During May, the students will also be doing a research project about a certain insect. The reports are due May 23rd. We look forward to hearing the reports and seeing dioramas. (Detailed information will be coming home soon!)

During the month of May we will discuss good touch and bad touch with the students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
