Please be sure to check this class webpage for information and reminders. I will occasionally put a secret word on the webpage. Write the secret word on your child's organizer, sign their organizer every day, and they will receive a small prize at the end of the week!

This week, 1/27:

Happy Catholic Schools Week! We have a lot of fun and exciting activities planned this week to celebrate our wonderful Catholic School Community. The community here at St. Jane de Chantal School is very special. Thank you to all the parents for sending your wonderful children to school here. I would also like to thank all the parents who volunteer as lunch angels and lunch servers, on field trips and for special activities. We would not have the amazing school we do without your help and support! 

Tomorrow for student appreciation day, students can wear cozy clothes! This means sweatpants, shirts, leggings, fuzzy socks, slippers, pajamas--anything cozy! No shorts or flip flops please. 

Our classroom is almost out of tissue boxes, if anyone would like to bring in tissue boxes for the classroom, that would be lovely (and a piece of candy might be involved!)

Our Songs Across America show is coming soon on February 20th! Students will need to wear their tie-dye shirt and a pair of blue jeans (can be jeggings). 

Save the date... Mrs. Cooper's Science Camp will be June 10-12 & 15-16. More details to come in January

In math: we will be working on fractions. Please continue to practice multiplication facts at home with your child, as this will bring them much success. We will occasionally do mad minutes to help them practice their facts as well. Also please make sure your child is doing their 20 minutes of IXL weekly. This has a great tool to help them with their math skills, and counts as part of their math grade. 

Here is the website for our math book in case you forget your workbook or need extra practice. Math Book

In religion: we will continue to talk about the ten commandments. We have covered the first through sixth commandments so far. We will also have a school mass on Friday. 

In language arts: We will be learning about verbs and different tenses. We will also be reviewing old grammar concepts and making an interactive grammar notebook. We will be working hard on our Grandparent Books. If your child is doing multiple books they may need to work at home on some of their books.We need to have our books completed & ready to send to the publisher at the end of February. Please help your child proofread their grandparent book. We would like to spell out names of states, months, and numbers under nine. 


In reading: We will be reading Sadako and A Thousand Paper Cranes


In spelling: Spelling unit 16 will be this week. We will have a test on Thursday. Remember, spelling sentences are optional for extra credit, due Friday. If your child does not finish their 5x each or their independent spelling pages during morning work or during class time, it becomes homework on Thursday night. A list of the words can be found on Mrs. Cooper's spelling webpage. 


In social studies: we will be learning about life after the Revolutionary War. We will also be starting to practice for the America show! The show is February 20th at 7 pm. We will also be tie-dying shirts to wear for the show.

Reminders:

We have PE on Tuesdays, so please help your child remember to bring sneakers for PE. The secret word is appreciate.
