Week of March 11, 2019
Religion - We are continuing our study of Lent. Students are keeping track of their good deeds and prayers by coloring a lenten calendar of crosses. They are also reading scripture passages and writing reflections about what the readings really are telling us.
Language Arts -Our WoW word is inclement. There will not be a prompt this week. The students are writing daily in their Writing Journals.They are choosing a different card each day from the Guinness World Records’ box. I am reading their writings daily to insure they are giving me their best effort. So far, so good! In grammar, we are reviewing relative pronouns, direct objects, and adverbs. We have finished reading Holes. During the rest of this week, they will complete the last comprehension worksheet and the end of the book test.
Math - This week, we have learned to simplify decimals. After taking a Cumulative Test, we will continue our exploration of Math, by rounding mixed numbers, and subtracting decimal numbers with the dreaded zeros.
Social Studies -This week, the students have completed Lessons 7 and 8. They are learning about the governments and economy of Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. There will be a short comprehension check tomorrow, where the students will be able to use their books, notes, and lesson summary pages. Then on to the final lesson in Topic 3! My plan is to finish this topic before Spring Break!
