A Note From Mrs. Roy
This week will be a regular school week. Our only change in schedule will be on Friday for Field Day. I know that the students are already excited about this fun-filled day! However, in the days before this, we will still be doing lots of learning!
In Class This Week
Grammar: We will spend the week focusing on some of the specifics of grammar: punctuation and capitalization.
Vocabulary: No test this week
Reading:We are going to work on a cumulative project to finish up The Watsons Go to Birmingham. Each student has started working on this project in class and will finish it up this week. Students will also be finishing up their persuasive essay on the advantages and disadvantages of zoos.
Religion: We are going to spend this week learning more about Mary, the Blessed Virgin Mother. This will include details of her life, her apparitions, and the various roles she plays in the Church. On Thursday, students will recite the “Hail, Holy Queen” prayer to me. There is a copy of this in each student’s Religion folder; another copy can be found here.
Science: We will be learning all about simple machines this week, specifically the six types of simple machines. Even more important will be sparking the students’ awareness of how these simple machines are used around us all day.
5thGrade Grammar/Writing: We will finish up our persuasive writing assignment at the beginning of the week. We will then move into some specific details that are necessary to be a strong writer. These include commas, capitalization, and apostrophes.
6thGrade Grammar/ Writing:We will finish up writing our persuasive essays. Then, we will focus on quotation marks, hyphens, and apostrophes.
