My oh my it is hard to believe that March is here, and we have accomplished so much! In grammar we are learning about verbs in the past, present, and future tense. This knowledge is really helping us spice up our sentences and helps us to become better writers. In math we are learning the wonderful world of tally marks, creating tally charts, fractions (whole, halves, and fourths), and now we are gearing up for addition. Our "number" of skills is really starting to "add up." In social studies we are learning more about the world around us through maps, globes, and models. We have even gone so far as to learn about map keys, and have created our very own maps and map keys! In science we are learning about the science of weather. From snow to wind, we are amazed by this incredible world God has created for us. We are getting ready to learn about the water cycle and the different types of clouds that make up our sky. In religion we are learning about the season of Lent and the path we take to Easter. During this Lenten season we are very blessed to have the ability to attend Stations of the Cross on Tuesdays, giving us the opportunity to learn more stories of Jesus and become closer to him. We are also focusing on St. Patrick during this month of March. We are learning that St. Patrick's Day is not just about leprechauns and a pot of gold. We are discovering that it celebrates the amazing life and legacy of this wondrous saint and all he did to bring God to Ireland. We cannot wait to share more with you soon!
