We will be going over the short sound of e and building words with the short e sound. We will also be looking at rhyming words and breaking words down into parts and sounds. When you are reading to your student please make sure to ask them questions while they are reading. This will help them start to think about what they are reading and will help them to be better readers.

This week we will be continuing our talks about baptism and the wonderful gift that it is. Our saint this week is Saint Isidore the Farmer. He was born in 1080 and died in 1130. Isidore spent much of his life working on a farm in spain. He and his wife Maria, also a saint, showed their love for God by being kind to their neighbors. Although poor, Isidore and Maria shared their food with those poorer than themselves. Saint Isidore is the patron saint of Farmers and migrant workers and his feast day is May 15th.
