The students made "Measurement Man" last Friday.  They were asked to put him on the fridge or somewhere that they could study and review.  The students will be reviewing capacity M-W.  They will be taking a conversions quiz over capacity on Thursday.
FYI...Vocabulary will be on the tests.  Please be sure to review vocab with your child.
  KEEP PRACTICING ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION MATH FACTS DAILY!!!  Flash cards are a great way to review and practice.

We will finish chapter 22 this week with a test on Wednesday.

We will then discuss the Three Days in chapter 21.  This is a very short chapter and there will be no test.  I hope you will consider joining the parish in celebrating this very special church season starting with Holy Thursday Mass.  See the bulletin for times.  The best way for your child to learn about them is by experiencing them. 

On Monday, we will read and discuss chapter 27 about Easter.  Again, this is a short chapter and there will be no test.  After that, we will prepare for First Communion.

Some key ideas to remember for chapter 22. HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide. Chapter 22:  

  • God calls us to love and serve him.
  • Not everyone in the Church serves God in exactly the same way.
  • Holy Orders
  • Husbands and wives are called to share God's love with each other and with their children.
  • Married Catholics have celebrated the sacrament of Matrimony.
  • All Catholics are called to share God's love with their families, parishes, and communities.
  • priests
  • religious brothers and sisters
  • Draw a picture to show some ways that you can love and serve God now.
  • Draw a picture to show some ways that you can love and serve God as you get older.

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: The students went to a convocation last week about Camp Invention.  The students will be planting some seeds with the supplies we received from Camp Inventions.  They will be observing their growth. 
S.S.: Students will learn about our country's government.
