A Note From Mrs. Roy
It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us. We will be getting a lot done during this short week. Monday will be a normal day for us. On Tuesday, we will be taking a trip to the ice skating rink for some winter fun. Lastly, on Wednesday, we will enjoy Mass together, followed by a birthday party for Jesus in our classroom. I hope that each and every one of you will have a wonderful, relaxing, and joyful Christmas break with your families.
In Class This Week
Grammar: We will continue with possessive nouns this week. The students did beautifully with singular possessive nouns, so we will move on to plural possessive nouns.
No Spelling or Vocabulary This Week
Reading: We have finished our second quarter novel Holes. This week, each student will pick an independent project of his or her choice that looks at the big ideas in the novel. This will get done in class. Our final Holes test will be on Tuesday. This will cover chapters 31-50, and students should use the sheets with comprehension questions to prepare for this test.
Religion: Students will be reciting the Beatitudes to me on either Monday or Tuesday. We will finish our posters with drawing depicting the meaning of each Beatitude.
Science: We have learned all about the different types of circuits, so now it is time to play with some! We will have a stations activity for circuits on Tuesday morning so that students can have some hands-on experience building their own circuits.
5th Grade Grammar/Writing: Students will finish up their How-To articles this week. This will include final editing, followed by typing it up.
6th Grade Grammar/ Writing: Students will finish their Trickster Tales this week. From what I have seen, they are wonderful so far! Monday will be spent editing the rough drafts, and Tuesday will be spent typing them up.
