Please continue to practice sight words. We have learned the "magic e" and "two vowels walking" rules  for long vowel words. We are learning about pronouns, possessive and plural nouns, contractions, and subject-verb agreement.  

We are learning so much grammar and are being challenged to use what we know in our everyday writing! Homework sentences should be complete, have detail, capitals, and periods. 

Math: We are working in Chapter 8- Adding and  subtracting with tens. Please continue to practice counting by tens and ones at home.

Religion: We are being challenged to reflect on how we can do/be better every day through helpful actions big or small.
We are learning about parts of the Mass, Eucharist and The Last Supper.

Social Studies: We are continuing to read maps and learning our four main directions. We will be learning how families lived long ago.

Science: We are learning about sound and light energy.

We are also learning how we can engineer  stronger bridges, towers, vehicles. Any donated building supplies would be appreciated. These can come in at any time and are greatly appreciated.
