Math: time; looking at the clock face to identify what hour it is & drawing the hands on the clock when given a time; identifying different coins and what they’re worth; working with counting & place value when doing our calendar.

Religion: discussing Easter & the Easter season; discussing seeds and new life; participating in the all-school Mass; reciting the Sign of the Cross, Grace Before Meals, Grace After Meals, and the Guardian Angel Prayer; singing songs about Jesus!
