October 2-6

Happy October,

I hope you are enjoying seeing photos of your children and their projects. They are wonderful to be with and they make my days fun and exciting.

This week we will finish testing their ability to recite the Ten Commandments. If your child has not mastered these please continue to help them learn them. We will learn about St. Teresa of Calcutta and St. Francis this week. I hope you will join us for the blessing of the animals on Saint Francis feast day, October 4 at 2:45.

We practiced the different parts of Literature Circles last week. The children are doing a great job. The next two weeks we will use these skills during our Literature Circle with the book Ralph S. Mouse. We need your help in having your child read the assigned chapters and returning the book each day.

The children will be assigned a book report this week. They will have two weeks to read their chosen book (realistic fiction) and complete the project. They will choose the books during library on Wednesday.

Remember the children may use both of these books as part of their AR goal. Remind them to take a test on them.

God bless,


Mrs. Lein
