Week of September 26-30
Religion- We have moved on to study the Mass. This is perfect because we are in chargeof planning and doing the parts for Mass on the 6th. I will assign parts next Monday. The study of the Mass will come straight from the Roman missal and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It will help the students deepen their knowledge of the first Mass being the Last Supper.
Science- Tomorrow we will have our first assessment for the vertebrates chapter. We starred material they are responsible for in class today. This week we will use paper for stem. All materials will be supplied. Questions, comments, or concerns please email me at [email protected] or I invite you to call me at home, my number is in your child’s planner.
Social Studies-Still looking at the physical and natural regions of Indiana. We will also study the geography of Indiana, the landmass of Pangea and tectonic plates. Students will be introduced to longitude and latitude by locating Illinois on a globe. We will also learn was our neighboring states are. Our vocabulary for the week can be found on the back of the newspaper. Students are responsible for spelling as well as knowing the definitions.
Math- 4th Grade Math: We will identify properties of addition and subtraction rules. We will also use mental math strategies to solve problems. At home, please have your child review add/subtraction fast facts (flash cards, etc.)
Reading- Whatever is Nick up to now? We will have a comprehension quiz over chapters 4, 5 & 6 Thursday. Careful reading and paying attention to discussion will be the key. All students need a picture of what they think Nick and Mrs. Granger look like for the activity tomorrow.
English-We are struggling with identifying the subject of a sentence. We will continue to work on this until it is second nature to us. The students need to answer the question who or what is the sentence about to find the subject. Please help them practice this skill. We are adding identifying adjectives to this weeks study.
