Week of Nov. 16

As I am writing this, I realized that today is the feast of St. Gertrude the Great. She is the saint who was given the prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory that your children are learning. Saying this prayer can release 1,000 souls from Purgatory! Our duty as Catholics is to pray for these souls.
Religion: We finish Chapter 5 about Baptism and move into Chapter 6 which discusses the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Language Arts: Our Unit 12 in Spelling has to do with 2-syllable words and having a VCV pattern in them. The WoW is NOVEL. The definition we are using is: something that is new to us. The prompt is: Write about something that is NOVEL to your grandparents, but not to you! We also are continuing our class read, Where the Red Fern Grows.
Math: We are working on division using two digits in the divisor! Please continue to encourage the use of mobymax.com. It will help them to work through their problems with a little more speed and accuracy!
Science: We are moving into our unit on MATTER. We have some definitions to work through, using hands-on activities!
