It is hard to believe that at the end of the week we are not only half-way through our Second Trimester, but also, half-way through our year! Where has the time gone?! We are diligently working through our goals and objectives for the year. We are also busily preparing for our Catholic Schools Week Open house which will be on Sunday January 27, from 12:00-1:30pm.
Here is what we are working on this week:
RELIGION – This week we will finish our look at how God used Moses in His big plan to share his love with us. Students will be making connections to the actions and responses of Pharaoh, the Egyptians, the Israelites, and Moses to Jesus, the apostles and ourselves. Your child should begin to see that God has a plan to use each of us to further His kingdom just as he did with Moses. We will be creating posters to depict the important aspects of the life of Moses.
LANGUAGE ARTS – We are enjoying our new novel, The BFG! Our focus during this novel will be the setting and how it affects the storyline. We will also be identifying different literary elements such as similes and how they add color to the written word.
Our WOW for the week is tedious.
The spelling words are words with ie and ei.
MATH – This week we will be continuing to polish our division skills by working problems that have a two digit answer with a remainder. We will also be working on measuring things to the nearest millimeter. We will also be working on how to collect data and use charts and graphs to communicate our findings. Later in the week we will take our mid-year benchmark assessment.
SCIENCE- This week we will continue to look at the states of matter and how they change. There will be a short quiz on that information on Wednesday.
