We would like to inform you that, next week (December 18, 2016) , we will start the school day with the Catechism after the Liturgy, during which it is planned for the children to celebrate “Detinjci.” After the Catechism and a short lunch break, we will resume with Serbian Language classes.
During the Catechism, our children learned to distinguish between food appropriate for lent and food that is not appropriate for lent. They learned that we lent to show our love for God, to get closer to God and strengthen our spirit. They repeated the songs “Marijo Slavna”, “Sveti Sava Srbe Voli”, and started learning the song “Tjelo Hristovo.”
The preschool group learned the Cyrillic letters “J”, “C” and “Č”, practiced reading and learned new words. First graders learned the letters “Ć”, “J”, “C” and “Č”, practiced writing and learned new words. The children also listened to songs and read a story on Vuk Karadžić, made play’dough letters, drew Christmas trees and decorated them with Cyrillic letters. The older kids reviewed the lesson on adjectives and learned about pronouns. They also learned about proverbs.
Homework for all children: All children should review the lesson about lent with assistance of their parents. Children should write all of the letters that they have learned so far. We ask parents to help children repeat the song “Sveti Sava Srbe Voli” and “Marijo Slavna” and to learn the song “Tjelo Hristovo” (which can be found here). Please remind children to cross themselves before and after meals.
Homework for the preschool group: complete exercises on pages 48 and 84 in Veseli Vrtic.
Homework for the first graders: Do exercises with the Cyrillic letters “Ć”, “J”, “C” and “Č”, in the books “Radna sveska uz Bukvar”, “Bukvar”, and “Prvarica”. Write a holiday card for parents.
Homework for older children: Read the story “Čardak ni na nebu ni na zemlji” and complete exercises distributed in class.
