We are beginning chapter 1 and we also had a discussion about the Assumption of Mary into Heaven and colored a picture too.

Some key ideas to remember for chapter :HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 1:

  • Jesus means "God saves"
  • Jesus taught that God loves everyone.
  • divine/human
  • Holy Family/Blessed Trinity
  • What did Jesus teach people by his words and by his actions?
  • What prayer did Jesus teach to the people? When do we pray this prayer?


The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year.  They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.

In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year  your child will need to know the following prayers. 

  • The Sign of the Cross (with the right hand)
  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Act of Contrition 
 We are discussing properties of matter and getting our feet wet with our new science program.
 *All science tests will be open book/notes.  My goal is to have students learn the study skill of looking up answers in their texts to find the evidence to support their answer.

S.S.:  We will be discussing communities in our first unit.
