RELIGION  We will not be testing over Chapter 11, but we will be moving on with Chapter 12.  In this chapter we will talk about how we pray for all people.  We will discuss St. Dominic de Guzman, who is said to be a man of prayer.  We will talk about the Rosary and other devotions to Mary.  

**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 working on the words for Chapters 8-14 in “Charlotte’s Web” this week.  We will have our spelling tests on Wednesday and Friday.  Remember, these words are a little tougher than they are used to, so be sure to study.  
  Please see the link below for the words for the next three week!

Charlotte’s Web Spelling Words

READING We will be reading chapters 8-14 in “Charlotte’s Web” this week. We will have a test over these chapters on Friday.  

GRAMMAR We will be covering Grammar and Vocabulary with our “Charlotte’s Web” book.    

MATH We will continue our work with Fractions this week. We will work on adding and subtracting fractions as well as comparing and ordering fractions.  I am hoping for a test on Thursday or Friday.  Keep watching the homework journals and daily emails for up to date information.

SCIENCEWe will start our next chapter in Science this week.  We will be talking about Earth’s Resources such as minerals and rocks, soil, fossils, fuels, and water.  

SOCIAL STUDIES   We are going to finish up our Chapter in Social Studies this week.  I would like to have a test on Tuesday.  We will be working on a Study Guide today in class that the students should use to help them study for their test.  

TEACHER NOTES –  

**Next week we will be taking the IREAD3 test.  On Monday we will take the Practice test and then we will have tests on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  PLEASE make sure your child is at school in the mornings and ready to go!  Again, a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast will help them with the tests!  The IREAD3 will be taken on the computers.  It is VERY IMPORTANT for the children to ready to listen to me, as I will be reading parts of the test to them and they have to answer on the computer.  (Beginning/ending sounds of words, rhyming words, etc.) Please help me stress to them how important it will be for them to listen and pay close attention to what they are supposed to be doing on the test.  Please let me or Mrs. Floyd know if you have any questions.  Please see the links below for further information about the IREAD3 from the Dept. of Education.
