RELIGION – In Chapter 9 we are talking about how Catholics are open to all people. We will read a bible story about the Good Samaritan Woman and Jesus’ Mission to off of us.
**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! (Girls will be able to wear pants for Mass Uniform starting in November.)
SPELLING – This week our words have soft c and soft g sounds (cell, gems). We will have our tests on Wednesday and Friday. Please see the link below for the new list of spelling words for the next three weeks!
READING – Our story this week is “Washington Weed Whackers.” We will work on vocabulary, compare & contrast, and comprehension. Our test will be on Friday.
GRAMMAR – We will continue to work on Helping Verbs in Grammar. We will FINALLY get to Lesson 12 in Vocabulary and talk about words in Social Studies and Literature.
MATH – We will continue to work on our basic math skills, but we will move on to Chapter 9 and talk about measurement. We will look at length, perimeter, area, and temperature.
Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home! The more practice the better! 🙂
SCIENCE – Our next chapter will be Chapter 5 – Earth’s Resources. We will work on minerals and rocks, kinds of soil, fossils & fuels, water, and how to save our resources.
SOCIAL STUDIES – We will focus on Science for the next few weeks.
TEACHER NOTES –
**I feel like I need to put in a DISCLAIMER – we didn’t get as far last week as I had hoped with it being Catholic Schools Week. So, this week…we will start again and hope to cover a little more! 🙂
But, last week was a lot of fun! 🙂

TARDIES – It is very important for the kids to be at school on time each day. When the kids come in late, they miss an important time in the classroom. My mornings are set up for some “new day socializing”. This is chance for the kids to chat and get caught up from the day before. It is also a time of early morning directions on how the day is going to go, what to do for morning work, and our daily prayer circle. If they are late on Fridays, they are missing the same thing in Art class, since we have Art first thing at 8am. When they are late, they seem to be more frazzled because they are trying to get caught up and figure out what is going on in the classroom. I know some mornings can be rough, but please try to have the students to school by 8am when the tardy bell rings.
**PE NOTE – On the days that we change for PE (Thursday and Friday) the students will need to be sure and have pants to put on for dismissal. This could be just a pair of sweats/pajama pants/etc. or their uniform pants. As we get into the colder months, I do not want them walking out to the cars in shorts.
