Week of 5-13-19 to 5-17-19Image result for alfred nobel the man behind the peace prize

This week in Reading, we read Alfred Nobel: The Man Behind the Peace Prize. We discussed the main topic, author’s word choice, and cause and effect.

In Shurley English, we reviewed classifying sentences, parts of speech, types of nouns, and subject/predicate. In Phonics, we learned about homonyms and reviewed synonyms and antonyms.

In Math, we finished Chapter 11, where students learned how to partition shapes into halves, thirds, and fourths. We also discussed dividing shapes into same size parts multiple different ways. We will take our last test next week, and spend the remainder of the year reviewing concepts previously learned (i.e. three-digit subtraction with regrouping).

In Religion, we learned about how we are a part of a parish. We also discussed what pastors and bishops are. We ended the week by creating a beautiful Mary craft, since we celebrated her during our May Crowning Mass on Monday.

In Science, we reviewed Unit 7 with a Kahoot game on the iPads and took our test on weather. We began Social Studies Unit 6 on Thursday. In this unit, we will be learning about people and places in history. The first major idea that we will learn about is family history, and how the United States is made up of people with diverse ethnic origins. An “Ancestor Doll & Oral Presentation” project directions/rubric went home on Thursday. Please read and follow the directions thoroughly! These are due on Friday, May 24th. STUDENTS JUST NEED TO RETURN THEIR COMPLETED DOLL AND THE ORAL PLANNING SHEET ON THE 24TH! We will write and practice our presentations in school; Students will present on Friday, May 31st.
