Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine this weekend! The school play, “Peter Pan”, opens this week. There are performances on Thursday and Friday night at 7:00 PM in the Activity Center. Please come support the drama program here at St. Al’s! Last week, we went on a “hunt” around the school to identify the Ten Commandments. The students worked with a partner to create a poster for one of the commandments and this week we will continue talking about the commandments to develop a deeper understanding of how these apply to the lives of a second grader!
We are continuing our GLAD unit on solids, liquids, and gases. This week our focus will be on melting, cooling, heating, freezing, and other changes of matter. The students have really grasped these concepts well and I am excited to do some more hands on experiments with them!
