Week of January 4, 2016

The Christmas season is drawing to a close, I hope everyone had a joyous and blessed holiday.  Now it is time to go back to work! 
Religion - We started off the week with a Mass celebrating the feast day of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  Throughout the rest of this week, we will discuss the Christmas season and how the Church rejoices in the Incarnation.
Language Arts - The WoW of the week is extrovert.  The prompt is; Could one be an extrovert at home, but be shy or introverted at school?  What do you think?  
The genre for January is nonfiction.  The students will need a nonfiction book with them at all times to read during quiet reading or when they are finished with their work.  
In English, we are continuing our grammar study on pronouns.  We will be practicing using pronouns as direct or indirect objects in sentences.  Our next class book will be Maniac Magee.
Social Studies -  We are finishing up lesson 3 on the Plymouth Colony and beginning the last lesson of this chapter discussing the French and Dutch colonies.
