Pride Meeting on Tuesday. If you cannot attend, you can view online. The NUT day is on Wednesday.


We are comparing, ordering, and rounding decimals this week. Fact logs are due on Friday. Several students did not complete logs last week. Please check in with your student to be sure they are practicing their facts.

Social Studies–

Test on Thursday! Students have two study guides that we completed last week. 



We have finished up the Sacraments of Initiation, and moving into the Sacraments of Healing. Everyone should be studying notes and flashcards nightly so when it comes to test time, no one will have to cram. Yes we had a test over Baptism, Eucharist, and all definitions we have learned so far.  Your peep should have brought the test home for you to see and sign if they scored below a 75%.  I know several of you did not see the tests because several came back not signed.  Please ask them to share. 


Reading/Language Arts-

Reading: We are continuing our novel Shiloh this week. Students need to bring the novel that they are reading outside of class each day so that I can do Status of the Class. There are still some students who are not reading 30 minutes each day. This will affect their reading grade. 

Grammar: Mentor sentence, prepositions, and compound and complex sentences

Vocabulary: We are starting list two this week. Students need to study their definitions on a daily basis. We will test next week. 

Writer’s Workshop: We are continuing to work on our personal narratives this week. 

All students must have one AR novel read by this Friday, Nov. 9 and have AR test taken for a grade. Genre assigned is biography or autobiography. For the next part of the quarter, students must read historical fiction. The I Survived series has been popular, but I have also pulled out some other novels that students may read as well if they need to borrow a book. 



We are talking about the levels of the environment this week. Students are drawing a visual representation of the levels and need to finish those up this week, possibly outside of class. We will then begin to talk about different types of organisms based on how they obtain energy, such as producers and consumers.
