Lord make me and instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow your love,
Week of August 31 to September 4
Religion– We will be planning Mass this week. The Feast is St. Gregory the Great. He was a pope so we will use the theme…Come after me, says the Lord,
and I will make you fishers of men.
Science-Moving on to the cells in living things. See handout for standards
Social Studies-We will be studying Indiana’s Geography. This will also lead us to map and globe skills, specifically latitude and longitude. See handout from back to school night for standards.
Math- Math: We are still working on our understanding of place value through the hundred millions. Each set of place values for ones, tens, and hundreds is called a “family”. There are 3 “families” called ones, thousands, and millions. Our objective is to read and write these numbers through 999,999,999.
Reading– Gilly Hopkins is the main character of the novel we will start this week. We will make predictions, identify characters actions, motives, emotions, traits and feelings, share their point of view, draw conclusions.
English-Basic review is how we will begin English or grammar. Capitalization, punctuation, statements, commands, questions, and exclamations will be our starting point.
Writing– All writing this week will be in connection with our novel. Students will be creating in there Gilly Journal.
Vocabulary-This weeks words will help us get to know our Gilly character better. They are either words in the story or words that show us her actions, motives, emotions, traits and feelings. We will work on understanding why they are so important to the development of the story.
