Today was the first day back to work. Well actually back to teaching. I have been enjoying doing work at home with Sacred Treasures. It was a really wonderful day but the children were as tired as I was. It is so funny that time does not stop. There is always something else to teach and amaze them with. Their little minds are just waiting to soak up whatever you can give them. We are having such cold weather and with the internet it is amazing what resources we have. I began a unit on weather and precipitation. We were actually able to go online and cut snowflakes and register them. We dedicated our snowflakes to the soldiers. We actually got a response back from a girl from Sweden. She loved our snowflake. Check out https://www.popularfront.com/snowdays/. It is an awesome website. We had so much fun.
Today is the Feast of Saint Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton (August 28, 1774 – January 4, 1821) . She was the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. This precious little lady was happily married and had a family. After her husband's death she went on to devote her life to God while raising her 5 children. She opened up the first Catholic School in the United States. We have so much to thank her for. God bless all of our Catholic Moms who are working so hard to bring their children closer to God and God bless the Catholic School Teachers who give up so much to teach about God. Never forget the influence you have on your students lives. God Bless You All. Teach your children and students about St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Don't forget to check at Waltzing Mathilda for a color sheet on her.
