Week of October 26, 2015

Religion - We finished up Chapter 3 which gave an overview of the seven sacraments.  This week we will begin one of two chapters on the sacrament of Baptism.  The students will be learning that Baptism frees us from sin and gives us new life in Christ.  Don't forget to send in pictures of the prayer table your child has made with the Mary grotto.  We will be adding them to our Mary Litany Wall.
Language Arts - Our WoW word is desist.  Writing prompt: Many people desist from touching jellyfish. Would you? OR What happens to people/dogs who do not desist from chasing after skunks?
We will be finishing up the book Hatchet early this week and will be completing some culminating activities before starting our next book.
We are starting pronouns as part of our grammar study. This week we will be identifying singular, plural and personal pronouns.
Social Studies - We are beginning Chapter 3 The Age of Exploration. The first lesson explains the reasons for European exploration and the technology that made ocean exploration possible. It should be interesting to see how the students see technology in the late 1400's  compared to the technology today
