Week of October 31, 2016

Happy All Saints' Day! November is the month the Church prays for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. I will be passing out a prayer card with the prayer from St. Gertrude. Please pray it with your children and remind them what a wonderful thing it is to be united with all souls...the Communion of Saints!
This is what the week will look like:
Math 7Y - We continue to work on Integers. Look for a Quiz on Thursday that would evaluate how well your child can add, subtract, multiply and divide them. We will also revisit prime factorization this week!
Math 7X - We have been working on the Pythagorean Theorem. Look for a quiz on Thursday!
Math 6X - We are multiplying and dividing decimals this wee.
Reading - We will be working on inferences as we look more closely at two of my favorite pieces of poetry, "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Lee Frost and "Hope is the Thing" by Emily Dickinson. If we have time this week we will look at a plot diagram, discussing each of the 5 main elements.
Religion - We will be studying for our Unit 1 test and then talking about Abraham and how he made a Covenant of faith with the One, True God!
