Our next lesson in Religious Study is “I Can Touch”. Sense of touch is presented to young children as a natural gift from God that is useful in discovering and learning about the world around them. Children will experience the enjoyment of using this sense through various sensory activities. We will also emphasize the child’s feeling of acceptance, love, and belonging are as a result of God’s love and his wonderful gift of touch and are manifested in such forms as a handshake, a consoling pat on the shoulders, a guiding hand, or a tender hug.
In Language Literacy, children will learn more Nursery Rhymes and Poems to be able to identify rhyming words.
In Mathematics, children will classify objects or pictures according to size and function or other conceptual categories.
We will discuss the uses of fire, fire safety rules, what to do in case of a fire, and how to call 911 for help in case of an emergency.
