RELIGION – We will start Chapter 13 this week “The Church Continues the work of the Apostles.” We will talk about Jesus and his apostles, the Marks of the Church, and Mary as a Role Model. We will have Mass on Thursday!
**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days! Now that we are past Spring Break, the Mass Uniform is back to being the plaid skirt or jumper
(NO PANTS) with a white shirt for the girls. Boys is still blue pants and white shirt. Girls may still wear tights under their skirts or jumper, but leggings will need to be taken off, as they are not part of the school uniform.
SPELLING – Our words this week have a Vowel, Consonant, Consonant, Vowel (VCCV) pattern. For example- basket, napkin, rabbit. We will have our tests on Thursday and Friday due to our short week. See the link below for the next three weeks of spelling words.
READING – We are going to skip around a bit in our reading book. I am trying to make the most of the last few weeks that we have left of school! Please keep watch for what story we are on each week! This week we will be reading “The Printer.” We will be working on skills such as vocab., making and confirming predictions, using a map, and figurative language. Test will be on Friday.
GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – We will be working on Possessive pronouns this week in Grammar. We will not do a vocabulary lesson this week.
MATH – We are going to jump on ahead to Chapter 15 in our Math books. We will be working on Multiplying bigger numbers! We will work on multiplying by 10, 100, 1000, multiplying by one-digit numbers, and multiplying with regrouping.
Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home! The more practice the better! 🙂

TEACHER NOTES –
DATES TO KEEP IN MIND –
WEEK of APRIL 17 – ISTEP starts this week! We will be taking one test each day for the next 2 weeks (minus a few days next week)! All of our tests will be done in the morning, so it is important for your child to get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast!
PLEASE BE SURE YOUR CHILD IS AT SCHOOL ON TIME!!
April 25 – VISITING AUTHOR –
We will be visited by a local children’s author on Tuesday, April 25 at 8:30am. Please see the information that is coming home today in your child’s bookbag. There is an opportunity for you to purchase a book before the visit and she will sign the book for your child. Her name is Kimberly Hoffman! We are excited to listen to her read her book and share with us the process of writing and publishing a book! Please consider buying a book! A flyer is coming home today for you to order a book, or you can click on the link below to print one out if their “hardcopy” doesn’t make it to you! WEDNESDAY IS THE DEADLINE TO HAVE ORDERS TURNED IN FOR THE BOOK!!
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 – Hopefully we are on the upswing of warmer weather, so students do not need to have long pants to wear after PE for dismissal! YAY for warmer weather!
