Kindergarten Weekly Update
The students have begun the Lenten season with our Ash Wednesday Mass this past week. Throughout the next 40 days we will be incorporating various symbols and read Bible stories that emphasize how to live as friends of Jesus and to grow as a child of God.As a family, you may want to discuss how acts of kindness and friendship can be shown while they are here at school.We are continuing to use of the Zones of Regulation, adding new tools to help students calm down and stay focused. The use of music, breathing techniques, “singing bowl” and meditation have also been added to our classroom.
This past week the students worked on their class book for the Young Author’s Faire. The students brainstormed ideas about what they would do if they “ruled the world.” Then they illustrated their ideas. We will complete it and submit our book this next week and the judging will be on Friday, March 22nd. We will send you the details of the Faire as we get the results of the judging!
