Dear Parents and Students,

Happy New Year!  I hope all families had a wonderful and relaxing Christmas and that Santa was good to all!

Here is an overview of the concepts being covered this month in Mrs. Kennedy’s classes.

Religion:  We will prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation which will take place on Saturday, February 4th at 10:00 a.m. in the Upper Basilica.

Language: We will write personal narratives.  We will distinguish between common and proper nouns, identify and use singular and plural possessive nouns, and identify collective nouns.

Reading:  We will read a realistic fiction and a fiction story.  Students will learn to identify the setting, characters, and the main events of the stories.

We will identify, decode, and spell words with Long e and Long i sounds spelled with the vowel digraph ie, and Long e spelled ee, ea, ey, and y.

Please remember to log on to Spelling City to review the above vowel sounds in our weekly spelling words.  www.SpellingCity.com/ckennedy7.  Spelling lists are also posted in Google Classroom for your reference.

Please remember to read for at least 10-15 minutes each night with your child.  Continue to study spelling words nightly, and practice reading skills on Lexia.

Science: We will continue our work in Ch. 1 Matter.  In Lesson 3 we will understand the different ways matter can be changed.  In Lesson 4 we will learn ways water can change.  Each lesson will be posted in Google Classroom for review at home.  You may also access the Student eText by logging into www.savvasrealize.com with your username and password.

 If you have any questions or concerns you may reach me at ckennedy@saintstansschool.org

Thank you,

Mrs. Kennedy
