Week of November 2, 2015

This week begins November. We prayed the Rosary today for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. I ask you to pray with your family for these souls especially during this the octave of All Saints' Feast Day!
Religion:  We finish our chapter on Baptism and take a look at how the Sacrament of Baptism is performed and what the symbols represent!
Language Arts: We begin Unit 10 in Spelling which has us practicing words that end in -er, -or, -ar. Our WoW is CONUNDRUM. The prompt is: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The students must remember to defend their view without using any words that refer to themselves! We also will begin our next novel, Where the Red Fern Grows
Math: Finished Unit 2 and heading into the unit on division! Make sure your child is working on math facts, especially division facts!
Science: We are working on experiments with different variables, determining which variables will change our results!
A special thank you to all the parents who were responsible for the 5th grade Halloween party! I know that the children had a terrific time. Thank you for making it so much fun!
