RELIGION    We will complete chapter 14 this week. Our test will cover the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders, our promise to serve others, vocations, and how we consider Jesus the High Priest.   I am planning on a test on Wednesday.

**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 the suffixes -ful, -less, and -ly (careful, painless, peacefully).  Our tests will be Wednesday and Friday this week!  Please see the link below for the new lists of spelling words!

READING   Our story this week is “Mothers to Tigers.”  We will be working on vocabulary, Author’s Purpose, and  personification.

GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – In Grammar we will work on articles and adjectives and capitalizing abbreviations. We will also work on adverbs that tell when and where.  In our Vocab book, we will work on Lesson 17 – suffixes -ment and -ness

MATH   We will review our Math test that we took last week and make corrections!  It is really important that the kids keep working on their multiplication facts.  We will spend a week or so working on “long” division.  They REALLY need to know their multiplication facts!  

 Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home!  The more practice the better!  🙂

SCIENCE –  We are going to stick with science and talk about planets, the sun, and our solar system in the next chapter.

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!
