Week of May 7, 2018
Thank you so much for the cards, flowers, coffee, chocolate, and gifts given to me throughout last week. You made every moment of every day special! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Religion - This week, we are finishing up the last sacrament of healing, The Anointing of the Sick. Pop Quiz: Ask your child what Viaticum is and what the word means. Our test on the Prayer to the Holy Spirit, will be next Wednesday.
Language Arts - We are not having a spelling packet or a WoW word this week. Both will return next week :). As we continue to read our class novel, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, we are focusing on the elements of plot and point of view. This book has a lot of symbolism in it. It’s a pleasure to watch the students making connections as they are reading. The students should be almost finished with their book for April/May. We will begin the Book Report Project this Thursday. It will be due on Monday, May 21st.
Math - During this week and next, the students have been able to identify symmetry in a given figure and was able to determine if it had rotational symmetry. We have also worked with decimals, rounding them to the nearest whole number and comparing decimals to the nearest thousandths. Next week, we will be using percents to name part of a group. For example, If 8 of the 20 students are boys, what percent of the students are boys?
Social Studies - We will be finished with the American Revolution next week. Our chapter test will be on Thursday, May 24th. During that week, I will also listen to the students either recite or sing the Preamble of the Constitution.
