Religion

Happy Easter! This month we will discuss Easter and spring as times of new life. We will learn that the Easter season is a time of great joy in the Church. We will identify Jesus as the Good Shepherd because he loves us and cares for us like a shepherd does for his sheep. We will talk about ways we can care for all of God’s creation. We will also learn how Jesus is always with us in the sacrament of Holy Communion.

 

Reading/Language Arts

This month in language arts we are continuing with our theme, Going Places. We will read a nonfiction, a fantasy, and an informational text. We will learn the sounds of short u, v, and z. We will practice identifying the main idea, plot, and characters of a story. We will review drawing conclusions and comparing/contrasting. We will learn what prepositions are and review nouns. Our new words for the month are: what, said, was, where, and come.

As we read stories we discuss:

  • Look for the beginning, middle, and ending of a story.
  • Look for the problem and solution in a story.
  • Discuss if the story is fiction or non-fiction.
  • Discuss the characters, setting, and main idea
  • Tell if the story is reality or fantasy

Math

In math, children will practice writing number sentences to reflect a variety of subtraction stories. In the sentences, they will learn to use the minus sign (-) as well as the now-familiar equal to sign (=). They will solve subtraction situations using fingers, cubes, and counters by counting back. Children will fully familiarize themselves with subtraction facts to 5.

We will additionally compare weights, capacities, and events in time. Students will learn to measure and compare weights using non-standard units. We will introduce measuring objects using a balance scale. Children will learn to compare capacities of containers using the terms holds more, holds less, and hold the same amount. Lastly, students will compare events and decide which takes more or less time.

Finally, we will learn to count money as an extension of skills children already have, such as addition, subtraction, and forming number sentences. Children will learn to identify coins by appearance and value. We will add different combinations of coins to pay for objects.
