March 20-24, 2017
Our anthology story this week is The Mysterious Tadpole. The parent reading letter with the main concepts and vocabulary words will be sent home on Monday. The reading and spelling tests will be given on Friday. Our grammar skills will be about contractions.
In math, they will be practicing the minus 7 and 8 facts; finding the area of shapes; working with geometric solids; multiply by 1 and 100; and finding perimeters. Please continue working on the facts. They need to practice their subtraction flashcards every school day.
In Session 19 of religion, we will discuss the Liturgy of the Eucharist. We will continue to practice for 1st Confession. We are also working on doing good deeds each day for Lent. Please encourage your child to do at least one good deed at home each evening, too.
In social studies, we are working in Unit 5, which explains why people work.
We are working on Chapter 6 in science. They are learning that there are patterns in the weather and that it changes from season to season.
Please have your child practice the lower case cursive letters. We will start working on the capital letters soon. Practice sure helps!!
Thank you for your cooperation and support!
