What Are We Learning?
Religion- We are skipping Unit 4 and beginning Unit 5 which focuses on the Beatitudes. Beginning with Chapter 21- Happy Are the Poor In Spirit, the students will learn what each beatitude means and how they can apply it to their own lives.
Reading- Students are participating in Book Clubs! We have three different book clubs on three different books-- Shiloh, The Sign of the Beaver, and Number the Stars. The students will be assigned chapters to read at home. In class they will meet to discuss their books. Their discussions focus on summarizing the chapter, sharing their feelings, asking questions to clarify any confusion, and making predictions. When reading at home, students are encouraged to use a post-it note to jot down any notes, ideas, or vocabulary words they were unfamiliar with.
ELA/ Writing- In April, the students worked hard to complete 6 different types of poetry. They will be working on their final copies in Computer class using Microsoft word!
In Grammar, students will be focusing on possessive nouns and how to appropriately use apostrophes!
Social Studies- We are continuing our study of New Netherlands. In Lesson 3, we learn about the daily life of the people of New Netherlands. Students are in the process of writing friendly letters through the perspective of a Dutch child writing to a family member back in Europe. Keep in mind we will be having a Chapter 3 Test on Tuesday May 23rd!
