Week of November 12-16
It is hard to believe that we are in the final week of our first trimester. Time is slipping by quickly! At this time we have routines and schedules in place to carry us through the rest of the year successfully...that is until the holidays come around and interrupt everything! We will be beginning Advent when we return from Thanksgiving break. With that comes our Fourth Grade Christmas Pageant preparations. Look for information to come home from Mr. Powers shortly after break.
In the mean time, here's what we look to accomplish in the next week:
Religion- We have completed our study of the Saints and have made some great observations about how they lived their lives with fortitude and faith. Such great examples for us! This week, we head back into our book and take a look at sin; venial sins, mortal sins, sins of omission,and sins of commission.
Reading- We are continuing to work our way through Because of Winn Dixie. We are learning a lot about cause and effect, and theme as we get to know these characters more. We hope to finish the book by next week.
Written expression- Our spelling words this week are words with oi and oy. Our WOW is diligent. We will evaluate our own work habits and decide if we have been diligent enough this first trimester or if we need to up our game.
Math- This week we find ourselves working on more word problems as well as dividing with a remainder. This will set the stage for long division which will be coming our way shortly.
Science- We are finishing our study of weathering and erosion. There will be a short quiz on Friday. Information can be found in Chapter 5 lesson 3. We will begin our life science unit after Thanksgiving.
