Highlights from our Week:

  • Math: In 4th grade, we worked on some difficult elapsed time story problems. We also began to review for our test. In 3rd grade, we continued learning about fractions. We compared and added fractions. We also began reviewing for our test.
  • Religion: We began memorizing the Apostles’ Creed. To help us, we used sign language when we said it out loud. We also created a door poster for Catholic Schools Week. It goes with our school theme, “Born to Love and Serve in Thought, Action, and Word.” Our G-Prep helper, Miss Kailee, was amazing help with this project! See the picture above.
  • Writing: We finished our second opinion essays. In grammar, we began our unit on pronouns. We had fun becoming pronoun detectives this week!
  • Science: We continued our exploration of motion by doing an experiment with rolling cups on ramps. See the pictures above!
  • Social Studies: We continued making our continent maps by placing all of the continents on them.
  • Reading: For comprehension, we continued our study of non-fiction features. This week we looked at how labels and diagrams help us when we read. We also continued our novel studies.
  • Technology: We did our reading MAP test this week. We are now finished with MAP testing for this round!
