Week of November 16 - 20

Ryan -  the Landforms of NY paper is supposed to be part of your cover. You cut it out and put it on the construction paper.

Homework - Thursday

Read for 20 minutes and record on log.

Math - Fact Families for 8 times table (in notebook)
Religion - skinny book - pages 7 & 8

Social Studies - p. 36 - Vocabulary and People and Places. Do on Looseleaf. Will be collected and graded.


Lots of questions coming in - here are some answers.

Ryan - I don't know what to tell you about the Thesaurus.  That's for Mrs. DiDilectis. She told everyone they needed to have a Dictionary and Thesaurus.  As for the Religion - you can certainly look up information about  St. Rose Philippine Duchesne on the computer but the thinking part of the answer has to come from you.  Once you know information about her (like what we read in our book) you need to think about how that shows God's love in action.

Teressa - the landform project is due by Friday if you haven't already finished it.

Thomas - Yes about the rose but I don't understand what you mean about the "liberty homework".  Did you mean library?

Homework - Wednesday

Read for 20 minutes and record on log.

Math- DHP page 34

Social Studies - finish landforms booklet if yours isn't done.
Test is next Wednesday.

Religion - today is the feast day of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne. We read about how she felt like a failure because she couldn't learn to speak to the Potawatomi  in their own language. Write a Feast Day card or letter to her explaining why she was not a failure but was instead a success because of how she showed the Kingdom of God as love in action. (See page 39 in your book for more info about her life.)
Test on Chapter 2 is on Monday.


 Isabelle, for now you don't need to draw the entire crowd. You can draw some faces or stick figures or just some squiggles and label it "crowd".  Be creative.  ;)

Got your message, Alex.  You'll just have to make it up tomorrow.

Homework - Tuesday

Read for 20 minutes and record on log.

Math- DHP page 38 (except for the people who received worksheets)

SS - workbook page 6

ELA - draw a detailed sketch of your memory #1 on the back of the 5W's sheet.

To the people sending questions about the math -

Yes, try the Spiral Review. I would like to see what strategies you use.

The directions say to estimate and then measure.  You can estimate all of the answers. If there is something that you can't actually measure, then just put your estimate.

SPANISH HW - pages 82 (Act  D) and 83 (Act  E). Study words for test.

Homework - Monday

Read for 20 minutes and record on log.

Math - It's Measurement Monday so the homework  has to do with measurement.  Daily Homework Practice Book page 83.

Science - Read pages A56-61 and do worksheet.

Today is International Day of Tolerance. 
We read the book Listen to the Wind:  The Story of Dr. Greg and Three Cups of Tea.
Read the sheet and write an essay in answer to the question on the bottom. You may draw a picture to go with it or make a collage like the artist did for the book.
If you are having problems remembering the story - click on the link of the title and it will take you to the Amazon page. There's a short video of Dr. Greg talking about his book. You can also see some of the pages that may help remind you.
