In Mathematics, students measured the lengths of two objects in centimeters. Then students used their measurements to write a number sentence to find the difference between the two lengths. It is important for students to recognize that they must measure the length of each object using the same unit, centimeters, in order to use a number sentence that describes how much longer one object is than the other.
In Religion student created a newspaper article explaining the Resurrection of Jesus. The class continues to prepare for Holy Communion in practicing the Eucharistic prayers. We are currently completing the Communion Retreat found on pages R1-R9 in your child’s book. It is a good idea for you to review and discuss these activities at home.
