Highlights from our Week:

  • Math: In 3rd grade, we continued to find area and perimeter of 2-D shapes. In 4th grade we continued to find missing dimensions of perimeters using algebraic formulas to solve. We also reviewed elapsed time, fractions & decimals, and data terms including mode, median, minimum, maximum, and range.
  • Religion: During Religion, we wrapped up our study of Holy Week with a great discussion about Easter Vigil and Easter. We also began our new unit on the Seven Sacraments. We learned about the first Sacrament of Initiation, Baptism.
  • Writing: We finished our informational writing books! We also shared them in small groups. During grammar, we wrapped up our learning of adjectives by reviewing for and taking a short quiz.
  • Science: We studied the life cycle of the bean plant. We also did a fun cutting/gluing/labeling activity and put the life cycle pieces together in our Science journals. The children took a quiz on Investigation 1.
  • Social Studies: We had an amazing discussion and learning about Chief Spokan Garry and the missionaries.
  • Reading: We finished our novel studies! We also had a fun DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) party!
