Week of February 1, 2016

It's hard to believe we are in the month of February!
Along with the special activities for Catholic Schools Week, we are covering the following material.
Religion - We are beginning Chapter 10.  In this chapter, the students will be learning about the importance of Eucharist and that Jesus is the Bread of Life.  The point that Jesus is truly present under the appearances of bread and wine will be emphasised.
Language Arts - We are close to finishing Maniac Magee.  Hopefully, we will finish it by the end of this week.  There will not be a WoW word or Spelling packet this week due to the disruption of our schedule. There will, however, be one next week. :-)
Social Studies - We are finishing up Chapter 5 on the New England Colonies. Ask your child how the childhood of the New England colonist compared to his/her own childhood.  The test will be sometime early next week.
