In Religion, we learned about the holy Triduum and participated in a Seder Meal..

In Reading, we practiced using the inference strategy in our book club books.

In grammar, we studied comparative and superlative adjectives. Spelling focused on the suffixes -less and -ness. Spelling lists are posted on Spelling City at: https://www.spellingcity.com/users/bchristensen9055

In writing, we worked on co-construction of an argument text and wrote two body paragraphs.

We published and presented our Saint web sites. Please visit them and look at all the hard work the students put into them!

Seder Meal

We participated in a Seder Meal this week. The students did a fabulous job listening and learning about the different aspects of the meal, as well as, the history behind it. Pictures and more information can be found on our Facebook page!

Book Swap!

Children’s Book Week is April 28- May 4. We are going to celebrate by having a Book Swap amongst the students.
Would your child like some different books to read? Do you have books at home that your child has read and doesn’t want any more? Each student can bring 1-3 books to the school library on Monday, April 29. I’ll record how many they bring. On Friday afternoon (May 3), students can come to the library to choose that many books to take home from the books contributed.

Birthday Policy

Please note the new OLOL birthday snack policy. We will provide allergen-free treats for students once a month to celebrate all the birthdays that month. Please do NOT send a birthday treat to school so that we can ensure the safety of all students.
