We are going to learn about five sided pentagons in our shape study in Math Center.We also use hearts for some number activities. I n Science we are going to continue dental health that we began last week and keep remembering ways we stay healthy and not spread germs. We are going to learn about two famous presidents in Social Studies. Abraham Lincoln whose birthday we will celebrate on Wednesday and George Washington who was the first president. The children saw these two presidents represented by 8th graders during Catholic School’s Week.
As always we pray every day and spend time learning about God’s love for us and how Jesus wants us to live and shine our light in the world. Hope you like the precious nightlights that the children made with clay last week.
