Happy Monday everyone,
English Language Arts: The spelling words this week are focused on r-controlled vowels er, ir, and ur (ex: person, dirty, surf etc.). You can find your child’s words on my website, under the correct color.
There will be a vocabulary quiz on our 8 weekly words on Friday an students can also find them online at connected.mcgraw-hill.com and login using their firstnamelastinitial4b as their username and password. We are finishing up our Catholic Schools’ Essay, going over more verbs, and will be discussing theme of books in more detail.
Math: We have begun working on division, but have started by using the area method or the box method. This teaches students to break up the digits in the number when dividing and the process helps them when we begin the standard method of long division.
Quick Quiz: Multiplication word problems (EX: If I bought 3 books and my brother bought 4 times as many, how many books did my brother buy?)
Religion: We are going to begin working on creating our own social media Ten Commandments this week. This includes creating Instagram-like pictures that represent what God asks of us as well as a #hashtag to show that we can take the old phrasing of these laws and update it so that everyone can understand.
History: We are talking about some current events in class, as well as beginning our next Unit on explorers to WA.
Science: Students have just taken their zoology science test today. They will continue working in the Zoology unit.
