Curricular Information:

Math:  During this very short week we worked on multiplication concepts and fractions.  We explored various multiplication models to help us understand and visualize problems.


Writing:  We worked on revision of narratives and making our endings have life.


Religion:  We finished our “Parts of the Mass” books.  We also learned about the vocations of marriage/family and becoming a priest or a nun.  We talked about listening to God’s call to us for whichever vocation he chooses for us.


Reading:   We learned that by choosing “Good Fit” books that are not too difficult, we can practice reading fluently.
