SAS 5th Grade News Sept 27

Where faith and learning grow hand-in-hand.

The Catholic Christian Community of St. Anthony of Padua welcomes all to our celebration of God's love. Through prayer, education, sacraments, caring and stewardship, we strive to serve the needs of God's people and to gain a richer understanding of the gospel message of love.

In the Classroom This Week:

Religion

This week in Chapter 4 we are discussing how the Holy Spirit strengthens us. We will be discussing the significance of Confirmation as a means to strengthen faith and describing the Rite of Confirmation and the responsibilities the sacrament imposes.



Mass readings went home today. Students are to summarize, reflect, and explain what the reading meant to them. Parents must sign the paper as well in order to receive full credit. This is due Thursday.

Language Arts

Students will take Unit 3 Vocabulary Test on Friday.

In Writing and Grammar students will complete Unit 1 on writing sentences. Then they will start writing their own story as to why their name is a constellation in the sky. This activity correlates with an art project where students graphed their name to make a constellation shape and a science lesson on constellations.

Math

We are continuing to build in multiplication. We are focusing on 2 and 3 digit multiplication multipliers. Students will take the Chapter 3 Test Friday.

Social Studies

Students are beginning to work on assembling their dioramas. I am so excited to see their final projects. We will display them at Open House.

Science

In Science students will be able to identify the characteristics of our solar system and our sun. They will view a slide show showing our sun, they will learn about solar winds, solar flares, sun spots, coronal mass ejections, and more.

Schedule Reminders

Thank you to all the parents who helped at our 5th grade booths this weekend at the carnival. What a great time everyone seemed to be having.

Remember to check out the the Fall Book Fair in Room 24 this week while you are on campus for conferences. Teachers will add suggestions on their wish list for classroom library additions, and Petunia's Place donates a portion of the proceeds to our Language Arts fund to help supplement classroom reading materials.

Thank you to all the parents that have attended parent teacher conferences so far. Please continue to make sure you are on time for your scheduled slot since we only have 15 minutes per conference.
