Religion: This week we are reading ch 15, The Father and I are One. We are also continuing to discuss Lent. In this religion series, students are asked to memorize answers to questions throughout the year. Please encourage your child to bring home their religion book to periodically review questions we have gone over in class.

Reading: We are reading “The Secret Garden” in a book study and will be doing activities around this book. We are not working on Journeys workbook pages for spelling and grammar this week. We take the reading comprehension quizzes on Tuesdays and vocab quizzes on Wednesdays. Our Journeys workbook pages are due on Wednesdays.

Spelling: Being a short week we will not be doing a spelling test. I always begin the new spelling unit on a Friday by assigning the practice pages in the workbook and they are due on the following Wednesday. That way if students have time and want to they can work on them over the weekend or they can complete them on Monday and Tuesday. Spelling pretests will be on Mondays and final tests on Thursdays.

Writing/Grammar: We are not doing workbook pages this short week. Workbook pages we begin on Thursdays and are due on Wednesdays. We take our grammar quiz on Wednesdays.

Math: We are starting Ch 8, Adding and Subtracting with Decimals. Watch your child’s assignment notebook for daily assignment pages. Using their IXL account is a great way to get extra practice on their math!

History: We are working on our Academic Fair note taking this week.

Science: We are finishing ch 2, Engineering. The test will be on Friday.

Please check your child’s assignment notebook for the daily work they are expected to complete and when it is due.
