LANGUAGE ARTS:

We will continue working on persuasive writing and propaganda this week as we prepare for the Craft and Bake Sale.  The students have been creating great advertisements using their Chromebooks!

Homework:  Encourage your student to read at least 30 minutes at home each evening.  They should have books from the school library and they are always welcome to utilize our classroom library.

MATH:

This week, we will focus on multiplying fractions.  This will begin with multiplying a fraction by a whole number and grow to multiplying mixed numbers.

Homework: If they do not have specific homework, they should review the lesson each night.  There are many resources online for additional practice.

RELIGION:

Advent has begun!  This is a wonderful season to celebrate.  We will spend time learning about the meaning of Advent including different symbols we see during the season.  Students will also continue their Christmas Around the World projects.

SCIENCE:

We will continue to learn about plant and animal cells during science class.  We have constructed large posters to help us learn what parts are in each cell.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Our Native American Tribe projects are on display outside of the classroom.  We will spend the week wrapping up our study on Native American Tribes.
