We began talking about Lent and how it means we are becoming closer to God as we prepare for Easter. We are focusing on doing nice things for each other to make Jesus happy! We all received ashes on Ash Wednesday and the children were so proud - some said it tickled and some said they didn't even feel a thing! During the season of Lent we all got paper crosses with our names on it - each morning the children pick a cross and bless the person they picked - it is so adorable.
We continue to say the Sign of the Cross, our morning prayer and the prayer we say before eating.
We also continue to talk about using good manners, sharing with our friends, treating our friends nicely and making good choices. All things that would make Jesus happy.
We continue to say the Pledge of Allegiance and now know that the right hand goes over our heart. We sing God Bless America, the days of the week, weather and month songs. We use the calendar to help as count and are focusing on the days of the week with today is, yesterday was and tomorrow will be. We are using the 10 Frame to count how many days we have been in school and also learning to count by 10's with the completed 10 frames.
We started unit 6 of our reading series - The Nightingale. In this unit we will be focusing on the letters L,M,N; understand the concept of first, next and last. We are learning to make an X mark; the color for this unit is black and lastly, we are focusing on right and left.
We finished up on our winter animals theme and are starting to look forward to our spring unit.
We celebrated Dr. Seuss Birthday, we listened to stories and did some crafts. The kids had fun!
We are getting ready for St. Patrick's Day - we will be doing some crafts to decorate the hallway and classroom.
