Week of April 10

The main focus of this week is to get our fourth graders prepared for their presentation of The Stations of the Cross. They are getting their hearts and minds ready to act out the most prayerful presentation of all Catholic prayers. It is scheduled for Thursday at 12:00 in the Church.
The second most important thing to focus on would be the completion of the ABC Books of Ohio. I've gotten a glimpse of some in progress and I'm quite impressed. The students' goal throughout this project has been to be informative and to make their book eye appealing for their readers.
Besides our stations and ABC Book, we are expected to finish our next class novel "Sarah Plain and Tall". It is an easy-read an and example of an historical fiction, telling of a family living on the prairie in the early 1800s. When we get back from spring break, we'll tackle another historical fiction book. There will be no Spelling Packet or Buzzword Prompt due to the short week.
The main focus for math will be reading and writing of decimals to the thousandths place and then on to multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000.
Have a fun filled spring break and a Blessed Easter! There are only 6 more weeks of hard work left, when the children return!
