A Note From Mrs. Roy
It’s hard to believe that third quarter is coming to an end. This year is flying by, and the students are making such outstanding progress. Let’s make sure everyone finishes this quarter strong by showing his or her best work!
In Class This Week
Grammar: We have started a new unit on Adjectives and will continue that this week. Our focus is really on the basics this week – descriptive adjectives, proper adjectives, and articles.
Vocabulary: Our vocabulary words this week are pulled from our novel Frindle. These words are pulled from the chapters 7-15. The test will be on Friday; we will complete practice activities together throughout the week. The list can be found here.
Reading: We will continue reading Frindle this week. It’s a very quick book, so we will be more than halfway through this week. Students are reading in small literature groups and in partners. Comprehension questions are given and completed with each reading sessions. We are also practicing some skills we’ve learned this year, such as cause and effect and characterization within the novel.
Religion: We will continue our studies of the seven Sacraments this week. We will finish learning the specifics of each Sacrament. There will be a quiz on Thursday on these Sacraments. We will work on a study guide together in class.
Science: We will begin our new unit this week: Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources. We are starting with the very basics to gain a better understanding of these terms.
5th Grade Grammar/Writing: We will finish up our very short Adverbs unit this week. After reviewing together on Wednesday, we will have a test on Unit 5 on Thursday.
6th Grade Grammar/ Writing: Now that we have everyone back on our normal schedule, we will continue with our verbs unit. We have a few more lessons, mostly focusing on moods used with verbs. When this is complete, we will begin to review for our second verbs unit test.
