Happy St Patrick’s Day tomorrow and happy spring on Friday. Tuesday we celebrate Mass at 8:45 to honor St. Patrick’s Day and Fr. John! Students may wear green, St. Patrick’s Day themed clothing. No face paint or hair dye. Students will not be allowed to wear hats to Mass, but may wear them afterwards.
ATTENTION ALL FUN-SEEKERS:
Spelling: On Monday I will send the list for Lesson 18. The test however, will not take place until next Friday, March 27th so that students can use the extra time to work on their Oral Biographies.
Religion: All students will need to recite part 2 of the Nicene Creed by Thursday this week at the latest. We will be wrapping up our study of the 10 Commandments this week. There will be an open book test and a fill in the blank test to name the Commandments on Thursday. All students will have a study sheet in their filer.
Reading/LA: This week as a follow up to our story from last week, the students will be reading a special non-fiction selection on horses with several fun follow-up activities that will support their reading and understanding. We will then be reading the original Flat Stanley book. This story will lead into our Flat Stanley journal project that will come home before spring break. All of the details will be included in next week’s newsletter!
Math: We will continue to complete as much math as possible at school this week with less math homework. The students got off to a great start with fractions last week, learning several strategies to find equivalent fractions. This week we will be adding and subtracting fractions. We will continue to review/revisit multiplication and division of larger numbers. And as you know, both multiplication and division fluency are needed for fractions, so continue to review for accuracy and speed.
There is no school on Friday due to a teacher inservice day. We are looking forward to a productive day.
Enjoy the short week everyone—and happy spring!
