We will finish chapter 23 tomorrow.  The test will be Wednesday, 5/17.  We will then push through chapter 24 and the students will have the weekend to prepare for chapter 24 test on Monday.

Some key ideas to remember for chapter :HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. 

Chapter 23:

  • Who is the pope?
  • parish
  • bishops and apostles
  • pope and St. Peter
  • diocese
  • all Catholics vs. not all Catholics
  • Why do you think the Church needs leaders?
  • Name the priests in your parish.

Chapter 24~test Monday

  • Does God only hear our prayers when we are alone?
  • prayer
  • temple
  • What prayer did Jesus teach the disciples?
  • What are some reasons to pray?
  • When are times you pray alone and times that you pray with your parish?
  • Write your own prayer to God.

The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year.  They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.

In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year  your child will need to know the following prayers. 

  • The Sign of the Cross (with the right hand)
  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Act of Contrition 
SCIENCE / SOCIAL STUDIES
Science: 
We will continue our discussions about types of clouds.
We will also read TFK.
 
 *All science tests will be open book/notes.  My goal is to have students learn the study skill of looking up answers in their texts to find the evidence to support their answer.

S.S.:  We will finish up the government unit.
