I hope everyone had a nice weekend!
This will be a short, but busy week!
Language Arts-We have our verb unit test on Thursday. We will then begin our new unit on adjectives. We will also continue working with “Snowflake Bentley”, our mentor text from last week. We learned about similes and have been practicing writing many of our own. This week we will be creating a “Simile Snowflake” to show what we have learned.
Science-We will complete our study of the circulatory system this week, and then we will move on to the respiratory system. We will have an open-notebook quiz on Thursday. On Friday, we will be making our own models of blood. The students worked with their group to plan out their models. All students will need to bring an empty water bottle and whatever supplies they planned for with their group. Thanks for your help with this project! The students have really enjoyed learning about what makes up our blood, and I know they will enjoy creating their models!
Spelling-We are on Unit 19 this week, and our test will be on Friday.
*Friday, the 24th, is an out of uniform day. Students can dress in red, white, and blue with a $1.00 donation. All of the money collected will go to a veterans charity.
**Our Catholic Schools Week celebration begins on Sunday at the 10 o'clock mass. Following mass, you can come visit the school and see all of the great things that are happening at SJF. Come stop by and see what the kids have been working on! I hope to see you on Sunday!
Have a great week!
