Today we recapped on the Ch sounding finding different Ch words that we could remember, around the room, and even our bodies.
The students then moved through their rotations, some children doing writers workshop, making a new book cover for a book, exploring the CVC words, reading and making our own words with letters and paints.
We had Ash Wednesday mass between recess and lunch today.
Ash Wednesday is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar. Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer.
Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, although many other Christians observe it too.
Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. As the priest applies the ashes to a person’s forehead, he speaks the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Alternatively, the priest may speak the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel.”
We had library and music, during music we got the ashes placed on our head.
