December 4th Newsletter
Look at what we've accomplished! :)
Reading: We finished reading the book Sadako and discussed how the author showed empathy in their writing. Ms. Jones' class has been focusing on Figurative Language and Miss Cavaliere's class will be exploring Figurative Language in the upcoming days. Both classes will begin to read a new novel before Christmas break to practice visualizing what we are reading. In Miss Cavaliere's class we have had some mini lesson focuses on story elements and characters, working together with our class novel and having some independent practice in our book club books.
Grammar: Students will be taking a quiz over nouns on Wednesday 12/9. After this quiz, we will be starting a short unit on subject, object, possessive, and demonstrative pronouns. Then we will begin verbs based on the fourth grade standards at the beginning of 3rd quarter!
When we went to mass on Friday we noticed that our Advent Giving Trees in the Church still have a lot of tags on them. The gifts are due back at this weekends masses. If the tags do not get taken, families will not receive gifts for Christmas this year. We would like to invite families who are able, to come and take a tag to help make someone's holiday season special. You may also send a donation and we will make sure it gets to the Church office, so other gifts can be purchased.Your generosity is much appreciated this time of year!
