Mrs. O'Heir- Kindergarten (K-1)

It is Holy Week! The children have been learning about the events that took place on the first Holy Week from Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and finally His Crucifixion on Good Friday. This week has beautiful Liturgies that deepen our awareness of the love that Jesus has for us. He suffered and died on the Cross so that someday we may live with God in Heaven. They prepare us for the magnificent miracle of Easter Sunday and the Resurrection of Jesus! Please consider taking your child to some or all of the Liturgies.  Thank you for sending in the cotton balls. We made a great surprise for you! Thank you to Mrs. Brandel’s 7th grade students who came to buddy up with our class to work on the project.

Last Week:  In Religion we prayed the Stations of the Cross by following along in our booklets.  In Math the children began to work in Chapter 10: “Three Dimensional Shapes.”  These are the solid shapes.  The children have learned to draw a cylinder, sphere, cone and cube.  We completed Superkids’ Club Letter-book: P/p V/v W/w. We sent home Reading Log #7. The theme for the week was: Holy Week booklet.

THIS WEEK: Religion: We will pray the Stations of the Cross each morning by following along in our Way of the Cross booklets.
