RELIGION – We will start on Chapter 11 this week. In this chapter we will talk about how we serve others and how to be a missionary. We will talk about Philip and the Ethiopian and Augustus Tolton, the first Black Priest.
We will also have our Lenten Penance Service on Wednesday morning. We will talk about this in class on Tuesday, but they should remember what we did from back in December.
**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days! This is blue pants and white shirts for the boys. Plaid skirt or jumper with a white shirt for the girls! Now that we are in the “winter” months, the girls may wear blue pants and white shirt. This will be in effect until March.
SPELLING – Our words this week will have “endings” such as -s, -ed, and
-ing. Our tests will be Wednesday and Friday!
Please see the link below for the words for the next three weeks!
READING – This week we will read “Beatrice’s Goat.” We will work on vocab., comprehension, cause & effect, and newspapers and editorials.
GRAMMAR – This week in place of Grammar and Vocabulary, we will be working on ISTEP Practice activities. We will be looking at different practice problems and talking about the best ways to try and answer/solve the problems that they will see next week on the ISTEP tests.
MATH – We still have a few things to finish up this week in our chapter on fractions. I would like to have a test this week to finish thing up before the ISTEP tests next week. Be watching for test hints to come home on Tuesday or Wednesday this week.
PLEASE keep working on concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, money, telling time, and fractions at home. The more practice they get at home the better off they will be for the ISTEP.
SCIENCE – We will focus on Social Studies over the next few weeks.
SOCIAL STUDIES – (We didn’t get too far on this next chapter last week so we will try again this week.) We will start on our next chapter this week. We will be talking about A Communities Geography. We will look at how we describe a place, what people add to a place, and people and their environment. We will also look at directions and intermediate directions.
TEACHER NOTES –
**As mentioned a few times above, we will be taking the first part of the ISTEP tests next week. We will be testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. PLEASE be sure your child is at school on time and ready to go. It is also important that they get plenty of sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast in the morning.
