Religion - This week we continue onto Chapter 4 in our Reconciliation Book. Our lessons will focus on how Jesus heals us. The children will listen to the story of Jesus healing a man through forgiveness and relate it to how Jesus forgives our sins through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We will also discuss the ways in which we can celebrate this sacrament. 
*Please have your child continue to say the Act of Contrition at home each night.
**Please remember to pray one Hail Mary each night to the Blessed Mother Mary, our class saint. 

Math - We will complete our unit on place value. We will learn how to compare numbers by using the greater than and lesser than signs as well as reviewing all of the topics from the chapter on place value. A Math Test on place value will be given on Wednesday. Please utilize the connected website for review work and activities related to this chapter. Math homework will be given on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

ELA - This week in reading, the class will continue to explore the theme of Thanksgiving by reading a fact based packet entitled "The First Thanksgiving". In Phonics, the children will continue to work on syllable division by reviewing how to break apart and mark up compound words and multisyllabic words. They will also review the suffixes -ful,-ment,-ness,-ish,-en,-able and utilize them in words. Please see the phonics packet that was sent home last week regarding this topic. It is important that the children practice their Phonics skills nightly in order to meet with success in this area. There will not be a Spelling Test this week.  In Grammar, we will work on defining common and proper nouns.
