Week of May 20th-24th
Hello Parents and Happy Monday!!!
I hope everyone had a beautiful, sun-filled weekend! Sitting at the softball field all day on Saturday sure put me in the mood for summer vacation!!!! But we are not quite there yet! We still have just a few things left to do in the 5th grade, so let's get started!!!
Religion: This week we will begin our final chapter (and Sacrament) in our book. Last week, Father Chris visited us and spoke about Holy Orders and when he received his call to become a priest! This week, we will dive a little deeper into that special call, and learn about Holy Orders and the responsibilities of the deacons, priests, and bishops. Our final Religion test will be next Wednesday!
Reading/Language Arts: Last week we finished the novel, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I hope the children decide to read the other novels in the Chronicles of Narnia series! Several have already borrowed a few of my books! Tomorrow we will have an open-book test over the entire novel. On Friday, we will get to watch the movie!!! It's one of my favorites!!! Our final lesson in spelling is over words from other languages. Most of our words we will be spelling come from the French language (example: ballet, garage, cassette). Our Grammar concept focuses on Colons, Commas, and Parentheses. Packets are due Friday!
Science: Students are continuing creating their slideshows this week. Many of the children are all finished with their project and will present this week!! Final projects are due next Tuesday!
Math: In math this week, we will review dividing decimals by whole numbers and learn how to divide decimals by decimals.
*The last 5th Grade Mass of the year is TOMORROW!!! Please make sure your child comes to school in their Sunday best for church! Mass will be at normal Tuesday Mass time (9:00a.m.). Children will be allowed to change into regular clothes after Mass.
*Field Day is WEDNESDAY!!!! Bring a water bottle and dress for a fun day outside in the sun!!!
I want to thank all the parent volunteers and all those who contributed one more time for such an awesome 5th grade picnic! It was such a fun day for everyone!!!
Have an awesome week! As always, thank you for sharing your children with me!!
