Week of January 21, 2019
Religion - This week we are working on special projects for Catholic Schools Week, as well as, studying about the Sacrament of the Eucharist. We will we will explore the importance of Eucharist and reaffirm that Jesus is the Bread of Life.
Language Arts -We are continuing to read the book, Holes. This class amazes me! They understand the story plot even with a lot of flashbacks in the book. Just a reminder, the People Museum Poster, is Due Friday,January 25th. The Typed report about the person’s childhood, adult life, and major accomplishments is due February 8th. We haven’t set an exact date for the People Museum, though it will probably be the week of Feb. 4th. For the People Museum, the students do not need to read off of note cards. They just come alive and speak as if they were the person they read about. They will practice in the classroom so ,hopefully, this will be a no stress activity. Because we are finishing our snowglobe stories, there will not be a prompt, or spelling test this week! Don’t worry, we will be back to normal next week.
Math - This week we reviewed transformations and analyzed prisms. After demonstrating they were proficient in reducing fractions, we moved on to the Cumulative Test 17. This gives us time to do a Math investigation on performing probability experiments.
Social Studies - We have completed the first three lessons of Topic 3. We have learned about the Inca, Maya, and Aztec civilizations. There will be a test on these three lesson this Friday. The students have the information on their study guides.
