Our Kindergarten class has been very busy lately, however we still make time to play in the beautiful sun shine lately! Take a look at all the work we've been doing and the fun we have been having!
What a blessed week! Thursday, March 19th we celebrated St. Joseph, the foster father of Jesus. We spent some time thinking about what a special gift our dads are to us. Kindergarten and Pre-school worked together to make a list of the many ways our dad's help form us into the wonderful person God wills for us to be! We finished our lesson with a prayer for all dads. St. Joseph pray for us!
Many prayers for a blessed season of lent. Kindergarten has been working very hard, but took a bit of time to celebrate the feast day of St. Patrick! St. Patrick was a missionary in Ireland and is often remembered for his teaching the concept of the Holy Trinity with the use of the simple shamrock. We thank God for the gift of the communion of Saints and angels in heaven, and ask for their intercession as we try to grow closer to God each day! Happy feast of St. Patrick!
This week Kindergarten is reading Corduroy, a classic story of a little bear who only wants to have a home and a friend. He goes on a little adventure through the department store and creates a bit of mischief, but in the end he finds exactly what he's been looking for. Kindergarten will also begin working on the Ten Commandments this week! Please visit the Parent Resource page for more details!
Thank you everyone for a wonderful field trip experience! It was great fun and I know the children loved spending time with their super parents! Have a great week!
Kindergarten has been enjoying the fall weather! We have been exploring nature in our school's back yard and making observations about God's creation all around us! Please remember our field trip this Friday at AGA Farms, please dress your student in their Regina Academy at St. John the Baptist, gym uniform. We will meet at 9:00 am and begin our exploring once everyone has arrived. Also, all are welcome to pack a brown bag lunch to enjoy under the big tent at the farm. Please remember dismissal will be following lunch and parents are responsible for their student's transportation.
The students are very excited and I look forward to enjoying this fun filled day together! Many blessings!
What a wonderful start our week is off to! We have an exciting week to look forward to. Kindergarten is reading a timeless classic, Caps For Sale, by Esphyr Slobodkina. We have also begun to memorize our second poem of this year, "I'm Glad". Please view some of our pictures of our "Wild Things" that we created last week!
I hope everyone had a blessed weekend! It was wonderful to see some of our kindergarten friends running at the 5K this weekend. We had a great Monday in Kindergarten, which will without a doubt, set the tone for a super week. Ask your student about our new book: Where the Wild Things Are. This piece of literature encourages our students to use that imagination God gave them!
Remember to check folders each night as there are many papers coming home! This Friday we will make our own "wild things" and have a "rompus" (outside off course, or maybe in Mr. Patterson's office!) Please remember to send into school a plastic gallon or half gallon container!
Lastly, dear parents, you are doing a wonderful job working with our biweekly poems! The children have begun to recite the poem individually in front of their peers. They are doing awesome! Keep up the good work fabulous parents! Have a great week & be sure to check back Friday for some pictures of our activities! God bless you always!
