Newsletter for the week of April 23, 2018
This week we will read, The Mysterious Toad. This is a very funny fantasy story. We laughed a lot when we read it, especially when we tried the Scottish accent. Spelling focus is words with oo, ew, ou, and ue. Our target skill is story structure: characters, plot (problem/solution) and setting. In writing we will study what a response poem is and write our own. In math we will be subtracting 3-digit numbers. There is a parent letter in today's folder to help refresh your memory on our subtraction. Today we were so proud of ourselves for subtracting from 1,000!! Science lessons are about geology, history of the Earth and we will be learning about the layers of the Earth. Bill Nye the science guy, helped us learn more geology today. In Religion, we will learn about Holy Communion and why we celebrate and share peace together at Mass.
Our start of the week is Mrs. Wartelle. We enjoyed looking at her poster, pictures, and asking clarifying questions.
May 2 is May Crowning and Mass begins at 12:30. At 12:00, we'd like moms to come to our room for a short program before Mass if you are able.
May 12 is First Communion 11:00 a.m. Please be at IC church at 10:30 a.m. Practice for this sacrament will be May 9 at IC church at 6:00 p.m. in the evening. Please mark this down in your calendars.
Please go online to order the yearbook. The link is under my "upcoming events" tab.
Please remember that all of your volunteer hours are required to be logged into RenWeb by May 1. Hours served after May 1, can go toward next year.
Have a great week.
