February has arrived! The month of love! This week is Catholic Schools Week.  We have a different theme each day this week.  Monday was Number day and we dressed in our numbers and played bingo in the gym, Tuesday is Valentine ’s Day and Family Lunch, Wednesday is Superhero day and Thursday is Cultural day.  February is also “I Love to Read” month.  We have been focusing a lot of our activities around different books and have had a lot of extra time to read this month. 

In Language Arts, we are continuing with our spelling program and phonics books each week.  This month we have been reading The Pigeon stories by Mo William and are doing many fun writing activities centering on that. 

In Math, we have started subtraction.  We are working on different strategies to solve subtraction problems and have started two-digit subtraction without regrouping.  We will be learning how to regroup and borrow after spring break.

In Science, we have started our new unit on Solids, Liquids and Gases.  A note went home last week about making a boat that floats on water using recycled materials that can be found at home.  We will have some fun testing our boats to see if they float or sink when weight is added. 

In Social Studies, we have started a new unit comparing Winnipeg to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.  We are learning about all the similarities and differences between the two communities. 

In Religion, we are preparing and learning about the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  We have talked about using our conscience to help guide us to make the right decisions and we are learning the Act of Contrition. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful February full of love!
