Baptism artifacts

Thanks for sending in pictures/candles for the children to share about baptisms. They enjoyed sharing and I appreciate you sending them in. We didn't get to a couple of them, so I will return the pictures/candles on Monday. If you didn't get a chance to send anything in, you can still do that on Monday.

New behavior checklist

We have started a new behavior checklist to help us reflect on our own behavior. I sent out an e-mail regarding this. Please look for the behavior checklist in this week's Friday Folders. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Who does this tooth belong to???

I brought in a tooth from a cow that my husband found on our farm. February was dental health month so I thought it would be fun to show the kids. We examined the tooth and came up with some guesses. They really had fun with it. We had guesses of a skunk (yuck!), bear, tiger, lion, leopard, deer, lamb, cow and horse. We discussed why some of the guesses might be a little hard to find in Boonville. :) We also discussed the health of the tooth (icky!) I guess cows don't brush and floss like they should! LOL! It was a lot of fun!

Spanish word of the day

Our Spanish word of the day was La Escuela which means school. We started our cultures unit and we started with Mexico. Taylor brought in some "pesos" that her parents brought home from a trip to Mexico. We will learn some new words tomorrow!

Thank you for your response to my note about email addresses and the blog. I will continue to update the blog weekly. I also may update it throughout the week if something comes up. If there is anything that needs immediate attention, I will send out an email.

Book Order

The February book order was due 2/22. I only have one small order so far. If you would still like to purchase books from the book order please send them in ASAP. If you need another order form, please let me know. Thanks!

Our First Mass

Our first Mass was a success! The kids did a wonderful job! I have heard so many compliments from teachers and parishioners on how well they did. I am very proud of all of them. Thank you for all your hard work at home. Also, thank you to all of you who came to Mass to support the class.

100th Day Activities

Our "official" 100th day of school was on Friday, January 29. With all of the Catholic Schools Week activities going on, we had to push our activities back a little. We celebrated today with different activities. We wrote about what we would do with $100. We illustrated a picture of what we think we would look like at 100 years old. We thought of and listed 100 different animals. We also grouped the items that you sent to school in groups of 2,5 and 10 for easy counting to 100. We divided the 100 food items among 15 students and had a little afternoon snack. We really enjoyed our 100th day activities!
