In reading this week, we will be learning about the past and how things have changed. We will also be working on what sound the o, u, and e make when they are followed by a silent e. When your student is reading to you this week please help point out words that may have the silent e in them. Such as the words, like, bike, cube, eve, steve, mole, mule, etc. By doing this it will help reinforce what they have learned in school.
In math this week, we will continue working on subtracting from teen numbers. We are always working on getting faster at adding numbers between 0-10. The homework each night will focus either on adding or subtracting numbers.
In religion this week, we are continuing to focus on the Eucharist and Christ's presence in the Eucharist. We are also going to start talking about how Jesus teaches us about forgiveness. Our Saint of the week is Saint John Vianney. He lived from 1786-1859. John Vianney was ordained a priest after the French Revolution. He was sent to a poor parish in Ars, where Catholics were lax about their faith. Father Vianney prayed for them and visited every family. He spent hours hearing confessions. Because of his understanding and holiness, people came back to church. His feast day is August 4th. Our prayer for the week is the following: "Loving God, you are always ready to forgive us when we choose to do wrong. Help our family to be loving and forgiving in the days ahead. Amen."
