Week of October 12, 2015

Religion - We are working on Chapter 3 which is an overview of the seven sacraments. The sacraments are presented as special signs of God's love. The students are introduced to the Sacraments of Christian Initiation, the Sacraments of Healing, and the Sacraments of Service.
Language Arts - This week's WoW word is herpetology. The students may choose between one of two prompts: How could a herpetologist learn about poisonous frogs without harming his or herself?  or  Do you think herpetologists eat frog legs?
In grammar, we are coming to the end of our study on nouns.  This week we will be learning about nouns in direct address, as well as, a word that can be used either as a noun or a verb.
Social Studies - We are coming closer to finishing our unit on Native Americans. This week we will be reviewing the Plains Native Americans, and learning about the Native Americans in the Northwest and the Arctic. We will NOT have a chapter test instead we will have two quizzes, one for lessons 1-2 and the other for lessons 3-5.
