Welcome to St. Augustine Catholic School
~ A Year To Lead ~


As Sunday night rolls into Monday morning we're off to the races with another full week of school ending with our Race for Education and Color Festival on Friday!!  It's going to be so fun!!  As we head into a new week, I'd like to share a few homework ideas I found while browsing through KidsActivities blog.  
  1. Create a special homework/learning space at home with fun papers, pencils, pens, markers, etc. that are only used for homework time.  If there's no space available at home, take learning elsewhere once or twice a week.....take learning outside (in your own outdoor space or a nearby park) or to your favorite restaurant where you can carve out a few minutes of homework time while munching on a favorite snack :-)
  2. Make learning a team effort once a week or a few times each month.  For older elementary students have a study time together followed by free time once the studying has wrapped up :-) Take it to the next level and cook dinner together afterward!
  3. Chunk homework time into smaller segments if time allows.  If your child is comfortable with a timer, play Beat the Clock and see how many math facts he/she can practice in 3 minutes or how many times you can write your spelling words correctly and neatly in 5 minutes.  If your child prefers to leave the timer out, let him/her know you'll help them get started then check back in after 10 minutes to review and have a snack break :-) 
Happy Playing, Laughing & Learning All Week Long!

Welcome to St. Augustine Catholic School
~ A Year To Lead ~


Happy Friday!  We're getting into the full swing of another great school year!  Today I had the opportunity to pop into 4th grade and begin a two part lesson on designing a donut shop which made for great math conversation!  To begin, I asked students to write 2-3 sentences relaying their opinions and/or experiences of cooking and baking - the responses made this cooking enthusiast's heart happy  :-)  I'm looking forward to visiting again next week.  Below are a few opinion samples from 4th grade as well as a link to a fun blog with a section on starting a "Family Dinner Book Club"


"I love to bake but I don't have much time to.  I enjoy doing it a lot.  I really want to do it more often!"

"I love to bake.  My parents bake all the time.  We bake from scratch all the time."

"I like cooking and baking but I do not do it often.  I prefer making batters instead of entrees.  I like using the toaster and oven.  I make coffee, homemade hot chocolate and homemade nachos."

"I think cooking and baking is a good way to express yourself."

"I think that I feel happy and baking is fun!  The best part is after all of your hard work you get to eat it.  My mom, me and my sister bake all the time."

Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Playing, Laughing & Learning!

Welcome to St. Augustine Catholic School
~ A Year To Lead ~


Welcome back!  I'm excited to begin my 11th year at St. Augustine School!  As we settle back into routines, many families will be spending time together in the car on their way to and from school each day.  We can use a few of those minutes to chat about the school day and/or practice skills from the classroom.  If you're looking for ideas of how to practice skills in the car check out this great list from the teaching blog "Lucky To Be In First".  This list includes lots of great practice ideas for early childhood learners but can also be used as an idea starting point for our older elementary learners as well :-)

Have a wonderful first week!!
