Shreveport, LA Chapter – Catholic Schoolhouse


Week 20

March 12, 2018 | Posted by Mary Catherine Aranda

It’s still incredible to me that we are in our last quarter.  We missed Jessica and AubreyAnn last week and hope to see them this week!  I think the kids were excited about the electrical circuits last week and I was excited that they actually worked!  Art was also fun with the rock sculptures.  Most importantly, St. Damien’s class was able to propel Ms. Lindsay into labor and she delivered a beautiful baby girl a day later.  Congratulations!!!

Week 20:  More about electricity and power in Science!  Here’s a show for the kids: The Magic School Bus Season 2 Episode 10, The Magic School Bus gets Energized.  We are making flashlights.  In Art, it’s all about clay sculptures.  Sounds like a lot of fun!  It’s more about Modern America in our timeline with the Vietnam War, the First Man on the Moon, the First Earth Day, the Space Shuttle program, and Roe v Wade.  Our History Song is all about the Space Age.  There’s some great crafts on the CSH blog regarding space and the earth if you like to do crafts at home.  In Latin, we are continuing with the Our Father.  In Geography, we are learning more states and capitals.  If you haven’t checked out “Stack the States 2” yet, you definitely should.  There’s also a Presidents versus Aliens app that my kids love and they are learning so many facts about the presidents.  In Math, we are studying inches and yards.  In Language Arts, it’s all about alphabetical order.  For the younger kids, this is a great time to get those ABC puzzles out.  In Religion, we are learning a poem about Our Lady and learning more about St. Katharine Drexel.

This is also the week of our OPEN HOUSE!  Please continue to pray the St. Joseph novena for the growth of our catholic schoolhouse community.
