We Are Learning About:

Reading: We will finish the Ff book with our Superkids friend Frits. Then we will begin the Ee book with our Superkids friend Ettabetta.

Math: We will continue Topic 8: Fractions & Ordinals. Please practice the ordinal numbers with your child: first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth. Your child should know this order. For example: line up different color markers, then ask your child, “Point to the 4th marker” or, point to the eighth marker” or point to the second marker.” When we are done with Topic 8, we will begin Topic 9: Measurement.

Religion: We will learn about Prayer.

Humanities: This week we will learn about the Second Intermediate Period in Egypt.

Science: We will begin a new topic to learn & test: Magnets.

Star of the Week for January 14th


A couple of times a month we will have a Star of the Week student in our classroom. This entitles the student to be the line-leader, to lead the morning calendar routine, to share/tell all about him/herself by filling in a poster. This will come home about a week or so before they are the star. A letter will also be included with the poster explaining all the special things the student will have an opportunity to do.

Welcome Back Everyone!!

I hope you all had a very blessed Christmas break and a wonderful New Years Day.

Welcome back to St. Jerome School in the new year of 2019!!! We have a lot to accomplish…

Do you want your child to be a great reader?

How do you become better at baseball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, football, or any sport? PRACTICE That’s right! Practice!

Research shows that children that read every day, become better readers and better students overall.

So, if you want your child to become a good reader they will need to PRACTICE!! Your child should be reading 15-20 minutes every day.
