Week of January 25, 2016

Religion - We are studying the Sacrament of Confirmation.  The students are learning about the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and how the Sacraments of Confirmation and Baptism are connected.
Language Arts - Our WoW word this week is ambidextrous.  Writing prompt: What career would being ambidextrous help the most? Why?  
We are continuing to read the book, Maniac Magee and should be finishing it by the end of next week.
Social Studies - We are beginning our study of the Thirteen Colonies by focusing our attention on the New England Colonies.  By the end of this week, ask your child to compare their life to that of a child in the New England Colonies.
