Catholic Schools Week was a blast! So many fun activities that celebrated who we are as a Catholic school.
Pope Francis is such a positive example for all of us this Lenten season. While many like to "give up" something, maybe we can all try to do a little extra for those needing it as well! Lent begins Wednesday :)
Math: We will be doubling up this week as we wrap up fractions (simplest form) and begin with some geometry concepts. Keep studying those facts at home!
Reading: Our author study of Roald Dahl will begin with new lit circles on Tuesday. The 3 groups will either be reading The BFG, The Witches, or The Twits. We will focus our classroom instructional time on non-fiction text this week. We will also be having language arts test prep stations on Monday/Wednesday/Friday.
English: Chapter 6
Writer's Workshop: We will be tackling a big ISTEP writing prompt this week to get ready for the upcoming applied skills tests.
Spelling: Our words all contain prefixes this week (pre-, post-, and re-). Tic tac toes are due Thursday, and the TEST will be Friday.
Religion: verse to be memorized by Thursday, Lent topics
