Religion- Our Religion book this year focuses on the Church and its community. As teachers we bring our Catholic Faith and its Christian values to every subject we teach throughout the year. We take advantage of every opportunity that may arise to share with the children what Jesus has taught us, and how Jesus would want us to act.
Language Arts- Our Language Arts curriculum consists of Open Court Reading, Vocabulary, English grammar, The Writing Process, Literature Circles, Spelling, and Handwriting.
Math- Our primary focus this year is to master our basic multiplication and division facts. We will also be reviewing the basic addition and subtractions facts throughout the year as well time, money, graphing, fractions, decimals, and the metric system. The children will have daily homework in math.
Social Studies- We will be learning about our land, the United States, and the first Americans. The students will be given new insights into their communities and will make connections to the larger world. Students will explore geographic, social, and economic aspects of their world.
Science- Our science book this year focuses primarily on living things, matter, energy, the sun, and the planets. We will also take time to sharpen our critical thinking and processing skills.Computer- Computer use will be integrated throughout the curriculum.
