    Catholic School Week starts next week.  There are planned activities throughout the whole week.  Check out the school website for more details.

    What We Are Learning

    Math: The students have been learning more about how to solve story problems.  They now have index notebooks that I got them, and we are filling the pages with math notes, problems, and math words.  For the rest of the year we will be adding strategies, etc. that can be used as a reference and they can keep it for next year.

    LAWe are reading about monuments and landmarks. We will be starting our unit on informative (expository) writing.  The students will be choosing a national park or landmark (I have them pick one from a jar) and they will be writing a research paper on what they pick.  We continue to practice identifying complete subjects and predicates.  The reading logs should be filling up. Next week I will be checking on the students' reading logs.  The reading logs will be collected on the first school day of each month

    Science: Test tomorrow.  The students circled or wrote down in their planner the question numbers that will be on the test.  Students do NOT have to memorize word by word the statements.  They need to know specific lists and the main idea of the sentences.  We had a review in class today and I used questions similar to the test questions. 

    Social Studies: We are concluding this chapter.  They have been taking notes and this will become their study guide for the test next week.  I am thinking I will change the social studies test to Tuesday so the students are not coming off of a weekend and taking a test. We will be able to do a review on Monday.


    Test tomorrow.  The students have a review guide to study for the test tomorrow.  Questions on the test will come from that review worksheet.
