WEEK OF NOV. 4
We can't wait for our little goblins to return to normalcy and come down off their sugar highs. Please tell us the Halloween candy is almost gone at your house!!
Dates to remember:
Friday, November 8 - Early dismissal
Tuesday, November 12 - 4B does the readings at Mass
RELIGION - We are still working on our saint reports, but we are definitely getting closer to completion. Some students just have to make their report cover, some are on their final copy, and some are still writing. The goal is to complete the saint report in its entirety by the end of the week. We will be heading back to the book to learn about free will, temptation, and sin.
LANGUAGE ARTS - We're getting to the really exciting part of "Stone Fox". Our focus has been on the characters, but we are shifting to the sequence of events, so that we can write a summary, stating the main events in a concise manner. The word of the week is efficient and yes we will be writing a prompt about how they will train their robot to help them look more efficient at home or school. Spelling words include words that will require doubling the last consonant, dropping the final e, and changing y to "i" before adding the ending.
MATH - We will be showing how multiplication and division are related and we will continue to strengthen our skills at multiplying problems with two-digit numbers.
SOCIAL STUDIES - We have been working very hard on drawing replicas of the White House, the U.S. Capital Building, and the U.S. Supreme Court as we learn about the three branches of government. This week we will touch on the topic of "checks and balances" that the branches have on each other and also what are our rights and responsibilities as citizens of the U.S..
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
