Curricular Information:

Math:  We practiced telling time.  We also began a unit on measurement.  We learned about mass and weighing items in kilograms and grams.


Writing:  We wrote letters to Pope Francis after reading the book, “Dear Pope Francis.”  The Nazareth Guild is having a writing contest for those letters and our school is entering letters from each class in the contest.


Religion:  We began learning about the importance of Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday.


Social Studies:  We discovered how the fur trappers set up the Spokane House and were able to trade with the Spokane Natives.  The Spokane House is where we will go in April on our field trip.


Science:  Our expert groups shared their insect information with others.  We learned about complete and incomplete metamorphosis.  We also took a quiz on our insect learning after we did a review in class.  Kanyon brought in a superworm and a darkling beetle which pupated from a superworm.  It was fun to compare these insects to our own!
