Week of 4-25-19 through 4-26-19See the source image

This week in Reading, we retold the traditional story of The Three Little Pigs and read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We compared and contrasted the two versions of the story using a Venn diagram.

In Writing, we finished writing and illustrating our opinion pieces on what we want to be when we grow up for our Student Treasures book that will be published. Orders are due by Monday, April 29th.

In Shurley English, we continued on Chapter 11. We have been busy classifying sentences with multiple prepositional phrases and possessive pronouns, in addition to the other parts of speech we already know. We also reviewed when to use a or an when writing.

In Math, we did a graphing project with M&M’s and buttons to reinforce students’ understanding of collecting data, creating tally charts, picture graphs, and bar graphs.

In Religion, we practiced singing our Communion song and how to properly receive the Eucharist.

In Science, we created a water cycle diagram and discussed the steps in the water cycle.

 This week’s newsletter secret is: rain.
