Week of May 4th

Happy May everyone! Hope you are getting a chance to spend sometime outside in the beautiful weather! 

Monday: May the 4th be with you! -Yes I am a Star Wars Fan!
               Today we will focus on letter Yy. Again Yy like Xx is a bit more difficult to write because of those slanted lines. 

Tuesday: Color Word-Pink. 

Wednesday: Bugs and Insects. 

Thursday: SEEDS-Jesus is our Shepherd

Friday: Zoom Show N Tell at 3:00. Show off your letter Yy crafts, Show me something Pink, or find some cool looking Bugs (Pictures prefered!)

The caterpillars have been growing! And I actually miscounted because we have 13 not 10. I will have some live feed video for the children to watch them for a little bit. It's actually very calming! 

Moving Up: The governor still hasn't given an official word yet, but I want you to know that Mrs. Dobres, Mrs. Tironi, Mr Dunnigan and myself are coming up with multiple options to be able to implement an enjoyable but safe Moving Up Celebration. I will keep you informed as soon as I have more information on it. 

Have a GREAT Week!

Week of April 27th

Hope everyone is remaining healthy! I pray for each of your families every night!

Monday: Letter Xx. Letter Xx is difficult because not many words begin with the Letter Xx, so this week I will accept any word with the Letter Xx in it. It can be at the end like "boX" or in the middle like "eXit". Let's see how many words with an Xx we can find and list!

Tuesday: Number 19. 19 is Ten and Nine More! We are soooo close to 20!!!!

Wednesday: Superhero Day. Dress in a Superhero costume, shirt or make a cape with a towel. I would like each child to create a message (card, poster, sidewalk chalk etc...) for all the SUPER HEROES of today (medical staff, scientists, gov't officials, delivery and postal workers, fire and police dept., restaurant workers, volunteers, etc...)
If you could take a picture of your child in their costume and with their message I would like to put it together for St Therese Facebook Page. If you don't wish for your child to be in the Facebook Slideshow just let me know in the email.

Thursday: SEEDS (our religion program) 3rd Sunday of Easter-Jesus' Friend's know Him

Friday: Zoom Show N Tell. You can wear your Super Hero Costume to the meeting! Your Show N Tell can feature your Xx project, the number 19, Your Super Hero Message or a picture of a Family Member or friend you would love to have as a dinner guest. (SEEDS story)

Please keep practicing The Prayer of St. Therese. If your child is ready they can continue on to the next three lines.
                                 O Little Therese of the Child Jesus
                                  Please pick for me a rose of the Heavenly gardens
                                  And send it to me as a message of love
                                 
                                    O little flower of Jesus
                                   ask God today to grant the favors
                                   I now place with confidence in your hands
                                    (silently make a request)
I look forward to seeing everyone Friday! Stay safe and Healthy!

Week of April 20th

Welcome Back!-Well sort of! I hope everyone is remaining healthy, enjoying their time together, and had a wonderful Easter!

Please remember as I send lessons and ideas for the children to continue learning remotely, it is completely to your discretion how much or how little you and your child are able to accomplish. Nothing has to be done in order. If your child prefers Tuesdays lesson to Wednesdays lesson then by all means-switch it up!

However, we will be meeting each Friday afternoon at 3:00pm on ZOOM for Show N Tell. Each Show N Tell should follow a theme or be part of a lesson from that week.

This Week:
Letter of the Week: Ww is for WALTER!!!! Walter you waited so long to finally have your special week! I hope mommy and daddy can find extra helper jobs for you this week. Maybe you can warm up their chair before dinner or help set the table (instead of hand out supplies)!

Number of the Week: We will review number 18.

God's Time: SEEDS Easter edition (April12 &19) Please practice the first 5 lines to the Prayer of St Therese. (sent via email)
We also continue to pray via Zoom everyday at 3:00 and 7:00pm. We have been offering our prayers for a St Therese family who is going through a very trying time. Message me if you need the prayer info and wish to join us.

Lesson of the Week: We Celebrate Earth Day!!!! I will post several activities to help you commemorate this day. Or if you have an idea please REPLY ALL and share with the class!

Color for April/May is Purple & Pink   
Shape for Apr/May are multi-sided (pentagon,hexagon,octagon)

The Beginners Bible -The Easter Story (On Youtube) is a great Movie for the children to understand a little more about the Passion Story of Easter without being to scary or sad.

We hope you all have a very Blessed Easter!

Week of March 30th

Well April is almost here! We are getting closer to Easter and Spring Weather! I hope you all get a chance to enjoy some of the nice weather this week!

In virtual class this week we will be studying:

Monday: Letter Vv and it's phonetic sound.
Vv for Valentine Vv for Valentine (VVV) (VVV) When making the Vv sound be sure not to add a short "a" sound with it and instruct the children it is a "Lip Tickler" meaning they should feel the Vv sound on their lower lip. It's very close to letter Ff which is a "Lip Cooler".

Tuesday: Transportation by Air

Wednesday: The Number 18. 18 is 10 and 8 more.

Thursday: Force and Motion or Gravity

Friday: We had so much fun seeing everyone on Zoom last week that we'd like to try again!
We will be having a Story Time and a Show N Tell for TRANSPORTATION to finish off the unit.
You can show your favorite kind of transportation or if you have made an incline plane, a paper airplane, or a sailboat and would like to show us how it works.

God's Time: This week, the fifth Sunday of Lent is the story of Lazarus. We talk about feelings and friendships. Feelings is a very good topic to discuss with the children at this time in our lives. You can go to pflaumweeklies.com for the Gospel video-Click SEEDS, Weekly Videos (small print) click 3/29/2020 then click the 1st one -Gospel Reading and Reflection for kids.
Pflaum has also sent me a link that I will forward onto you so you can print our weekly series if you'd like.

Lenten Prayer: We adore you O Christ and we bless You. Because by Your holy cross You have redeemed the world. AMEN

Looking ahead to the week of April 6th.
- Some Review of Letters and Numbers
-Wed. 4/8 an Easter Hat Show N Tell on Zoom with an Easter Hat Dance Party. Have fun creating a Hat with what you have at home. Please don't risk going out to get supplies. If you really need something I can deliver it to you from my home.

We will be on Easter Break from Thurs. 4/9 (date just added from the diocese) till Sunday 4/19.
