Review of the Week:
This week, we took each letter of PRISM (Pride, Respect, Inclusion, Safety, Manners) and talked about what each “looks” like. Next week, I will be talking about their PRISM chart and what a happy, straight and sad face looks like within the context of the class. We will begin PRISM charts mid-October.
On Monday, the kindergartners met their 8th grade partner. We will be getting together weekly. They got to know each other while completing a Curriculum Night project.
Apples, apples, apples!! I read information books about the life cycles of an apple and we watched a video of an apple orchard in Colorado. We examined and labeled the parts of an apple. The highlight of the week was eating three types of apples and deciding which apple tasted the best. They tried Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples. Our class graph is out in the hallway.
In religion, we went into the church and talked about the objects inside the church. We located the altar, ambo, tabernacle and the Stations of the Cross. We also ventured to the sacristy (behind the front of the church). We looked at the altar servers’ white gowns and Father’s vestments. We also talked about the Creation story and that everything that God makes is good.
Next Week’s Target Goals: I can follow PRISM.
Literacy: I can write my name. I can spell my name. I can listen to a story and answer questions about a story.
Religion: I can say the “Our Father”, “Hail Mary” and the before and after meal prayers. I can retell the Creation story.
Math: I can write numbers 1-5.
