RELIGION – We will finish up 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.
It is our week to plan the Mass. If your child has a reading part, please be sure to have them practice at home a few times before Thursday! Please join us for Mass if you can!
**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 through March.
SPELLING – We will be starting our 2nd novel this week. We will be reading “Charlotte’s Web!” We will not have a spelling test this week though, due to ISTEP. I will warn you though for the next few weeks, the words are little tough!
Please see the link below for the words for the next three week!
READING – We will be starting our novel “Charlotte’s Web” this week. We will cover several different concepts that will be part of our Grammar and Vocabulary. We will NOT have a test this week over the first few chapters, but we will be reading and discussing the chapters.
GRAMMAR – We will be covering Grammar and Vocabulary with our “Charlotte’s Web” book.
MATH – We will finish up chapter 18 this week and continue with comparing, ordering, adding, and subtracting fractions in Chapter 19. We will not test this week due to ISTEP.
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 are 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 this week. We will be testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings.
