Things To Do

  • Each week please be sure your child has working headphones, a chapter book handy and any missing homework notices inside the front cover of their homework book signed.

April 15-19

  • Religion: We will be having a test Monday on Chapter 18.  We will be having a retreat day on Holy Thursday in class.
  • Math:   Students will continue to take a quiz each day  to help maintain skills we have worked on this year with a heavy focus on fractions.  Students will take the test on multiplying and dividing decimals on Wednesday, April 17th.  Extra help is available on Tuesday until 3:00 with a note for decimal as well as fraction review.
  • ILA: There will be no Reading Log or spelling words this week. April is National Poetry Month and students have been given the task of memorizing a poem this month to present to the class.  We will soon begin scheduling dates to present.  Many students have been excited to take on this task and may volunteer to present their poems first, after Easter break.  All others will be given a date of May 1st or soon after.
  • Science:   All Science boards for the Science experiment project are due in school this Monday, April 15th.  We will continue our look into Chapter 11 Forces in Motion.  Students have begun writing vocabulary for this chapter in their notebooks and should be studying each night as we go along in this chapter, there will be quizzes along the way so don’t leave studying vocabulary for the end of our Chapter.  We will also be working on a Simple Machines project using Google Slides during our class time this week.
