Welcome to Mrs. Healy’s Classroom
Notre Dame 2018-2019
The Notre Dame community successfully engages the whole child through experiential learning to make them stronger in mind, body and soul.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. -Proverbs 3:5
Welcome to the 2018–2019 school year. I am extremely excited to be working with your child this year.
Please have your planner signed each night
What we are focusing on in school.
Math – see Mrs. Kohl’s webpage–
Please practice math facts nightly.
Fundations– We are on our last unit in Fundations. Unit 14 introduces the students to the glued sounds of ture, tu. I will later introduce the letter combinations of ti and ci.
Religion – We are preparing for our 3rd grade Mass on Wednesday, May 22.
English– We have finished all of the units in our English book. We are turning our focus to writing a planet research paper.
Science- We are working on rocks and minerals.
Social Studies- We will be working with our new social studies textbook this year. There are many new, creative ways to learn about the world around us in this series. We are currently working on cultures around the world. We had a visit from the Mayor of De Pere and he told us all about his job. Please feel free to stop in and see our box community.
Reading – Students should read 20 minutes per day. This year we will be working in our guided reading groups, along with our anthology. I am currently leveling students for the last time this year. We will then focus on a few stories in our Journey’s book. The third grade performed a reader’s theater for their kindergarten reading buddies. The reader’s theater was titled ” The Animals of the Chinese Zodiac”.
If your child is going to be late for any reason and you do not call in by 8:00-8:15 they will need to bring a cold lunch. You may even call the night before and leave a message if you know your child will be late.
