Things To Do

  • Please be sure your child has a working set of headphones for computer work.  Students need headphones not just for computer class but for working on chrome books most days.
  • Every student should bring in a chapter book, to be kept at their desk for quiet reading.
  • Clear contact paper  to cover student Bibles when sent home.
  • Bring in 5 book socks to cover textbooks.

Week of September 17-21

  • Religion:  Students will be discussing how Jesus calls us to worship.  How we worship Jesus by imitating his life of prayer, loving service and sacrifice.  They will explain grace as a share in God’s life and learn how Jesus worshiped the Father as well as categorize the Sacraments of Service of Communion, Initiation and Healing.
  • Math:  Students will continue with a review of the Properties of Addition and Rules of Subtraction.  They will estimate sums and differences with front end estimation as well as estimation by rounding.  Students will also be working on addition of three or more addends.  Students should be reviewing their math multiplication facts at home as much as possible.
  • ILA: Students will receive a new list of spelling words and will be required to complete at least three activities either on spellingcity.com or in the spelling packets in their folder before the test on Friday.   Students will be memorizing and identifying prepositions and prepositional phrases.  We will continue to discuss what makes a good personal narrative with a focus on considering audience and  voice when writing their own personal narrative.
  • Science:  Students will continue to understand what scientists do and will work on creating their own hypothesis for different questions within the Scientific Method.  Students will be creating their own experiments and identifying their controls and variables within their experiment.  They will analyze their data and share results.  There will be a review of Chapter One vocabulary and concepts before a test this Friday.
