Week of October 2, 2017

Religion – This week, we are continuing our lessons on Mary.  Last week, the students watched a power point presentation on the various titles for Mary.  Then they picked out a title for Mary.  Using the internet, or pictures of Mary in the home, the students were to find a picture that went with their title.  They are to bring these pictures into school by this Thursday.  Each student will mount their picture on construction paper and write a reflection of why they chose their picture.  This Friday, the fifth grade will be making their very own Rosary!

 

Language Arts – Our WoW word is impeccable.  The prompt is: What do you thinks tastes impeccable?  We finished the book From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.  This week we are beginning our next novel, Hatchet. The September book project is due Wednesday, October 4th.  The October genre is Mystery.  Students need to be looking for a mystery to read during the month of October.  You won’t believe the book project for the Mystery genre J.

 

Social Studies – We are continuing our unit on Native Americans.  This week, we will be studying the Native Americans who lived on the Plains and the tribes who lived in the Southwest. We will have a Quiz after lessons 3 and 4.
