As Christmas draws near, students will keep/reflect on a personal Advent journal. Be sure to ask your child periodically about this. We joyfully wait for the coming of Christ!
We will begin studying for our ACRE test which is given by the Archdiocese to assess students’ knowledge of the Catholic faith. The test isn’t until late January, so we have plenty of time to prepare. Each child will be given a study guide to use to prepare.
We are jumping forward to Chapter 9 in preparation for learning how to add/subtract fractions. This chapter, however, will focus on number theory and fraction concepts.
Lesson 7 Use Logical Reasoning
Lesson 8 Relate Fractions, Mixed Numbers and Decimals
TEST before break; watch student planners for more info.
Please continue to brush up on multiplication and division fast facts. Check in with your child on Rocket Math. How far is your child? Let’s make it a goal to have multiplication sets completed by Christmas Break! Several may be able to finish division, too!!
Chapter 5: English Colonies
Lesson 1- Massachusetts Bay Colony
Lesson 2- New Ideas, New Colonies
Lesson 3- New England’s Economy
Review and Test on Monday or Tuesday of next week; watch student planners
We are reading various fictional and non-fictional passages this week.
**Implemented Reading Logs- 20 minutes daily/day.** Students should be taking Accelerated Reading Quizzes to track growth!
Science- From the desk of Mrs. Tieken:
Planning on wrapping up the chapter with an assessment on Wednesday December 14th. We will have a review day on tuesday. Science will flip flop to the morning a couple of days so we don’t miss it because of Christmas Program practice.
The plan is to do STEM on Monday and Tuesday of the last week before Christmas.
Questions, comments, or concerns please email me at [email protected] or I invite you to call me at home, your child has my number in their planner.
Peace and blessings
