This week in Religion

We continue to pray the Joyful Mysteries for Advent. Students are leading the Rosary, and are doing an amazing job! Our Jesse Tree also continues, as we prepare for the birth of Christ! The students had a great time making their hats and learning the song for our Santa Lucia procession!! :)

This week in Math

We wrapped up Chapter 4 this week which focused on addition regrouping. Next week, rather than start a new chapter, we'll spend time in enrichment, math centers and continue some much needed practice on problem solving and critical thinking skills. We'll also be testing out some new processes for rotations during math class (similar to what we do for some of our language arts classes).

This week in Language Arts

This week in language arts, we read a story about Abuelo and the Three Bears. In that story, we've continued work on comparison across texts, summarizing, annotating and vocabulary. We've also done some activities to help us practice our suffixes, and to understand how they work. Partner read and annotate continues to be a popular day of the week. Students did much better this time around with their annotating, I'm excited to see them progress! It's particularly interesting to me because my eighth grader is learning to annotate in one of his classes. I like to tell them that they're basically doing 8th grade work!! :)
