A huge shout out to all of the parents who helped with our Halloween Party last week! They kids had a great time! Today we received our ice cream reward for coming in Second place in our fundraising efforts for the Run4Fun! We still have a couple of class rewards coming our way. Watch for notes in their assignment pads for crazy socks/hat day and our additional out of uniform day. Now, we settle in to finish out our first trimester, which ends next Friday, November 15. This Friday is an out of uniform day and we will also be having our monthly early dismissal so that we as a faculty can spend some time with School of Faith, developing our own discipleship goals.
Here's a peek at our Week:
Religion- We will be wrapping up the final copy of our Saint Reports this week as well as getting back into our curriculum. Chapter 4 inour book takes a look at how we form our conscience as we become better disciples.
Reading- We are continuing on in our novel, Stone Fox. As we read more about Willy's determination, fortitude and diligence, we will watch for cause and effect as well as pay close attention to sequencing of events. As we do this we will be able to develop a greater sense of what is happening and why.
Written Expression- Our WOW this week is: diligent. There will be a prompt this week about the importance of being diligent with our work. Our spelling words this week are words with suffixes.
Math- This week we are working with the associative property of multiplication. We will also be learning about the relationship between multiplication and division and practicing our skills of multiplying two digit numbers.
Science- Our test on plants is tomorrow ~ Tuesday, November 5. After that we will spend a little time looking at a specific plant to identify its adaptations. We will identify unique characteristics of it, especially what seed looks like and where it is found.
Have a great week!
