Week of October 19, 2015

This week is only four days, but we will be doing much!
Religion: We finished Chapter 3 and are heading into Chapter 4 which is introducing us to the Sacrament of Baptism and shows the students where in scripture Jesus gave us this wonderful sacrament.
Language Arts: We are working on finishing our chapter on nouns, catching up in our Spelling workbook and reading more of Hatchet. The discussion will focus on the rising action and how the author keeps us in the story with descriptive writing. We'll look at ways we can improve our own writing by copying some of his methods.
Math: We continue to work on the mechanics of computation, especially multiplying numbers with decimals. We will introduce some long division, too, traditional-style.
Science: As we finish with our study of the sun and stars, we move into a study of Light and how light moves through different materials.
