March is such an exciting, hopeful month!
We began a Lent devotion, looking forward to Jesus’ great work for us. Spring began officially, and we’ve had some warm weather! We’ve had fun at recess and enjoyed having PE outside again.
In Art we’ve explored some different techniques, from paper rolling to make snails, to bleeding tissue paper to dye tulips. Both of these can be found in the hallway outside our classroom: take a peek!
Science has been focused on map skills this month. We’ve learned about directions, the compass rose, and how to read a map with and without a grid.
The first week of March we celebrated Literacy Week with dress up days and special activities. During that week parents and grandparents came into our class to read their favorite books to us and the children loved it! Literacy continues to be a lot of the same activities. We focus on phonics, reading speed and accuracy. It is fun and amazing for me to see children who came to me not able to sound out a single word just a few short months ago, now enjoying reading simple books! Their writing skills are also greatly improved!
This month in Math we finished working on addition through ten and moved on to subtraction.
