This week has been a busy one for the second graders as they settle into the routines of school. We've been working hard to learn strategies for addition. These include making ten and counting on. In reading, we are focused largely on short vowel sounds and phonemic awareness activities to distinguish the sounds. We took our liturgical year assessment today, and the children demonstrated that they truly understood what each color of the church year means! Go ahead and ask them! They're rock stars!
I'm pretty excited about finding this new site! Raising and Teaching Little Saints! It looks like there are some great ideas for teaching feast days and Advent! My focus in the coming week is the liturgical year, I am developing some activities to reinforce the colors, vocabulary, and sequence of the seasons of the liturgical year!
