 Highlights from our Week:

  • Math: The 3rd graders prepared for 4th grade with some fraction lessons while the 4th graders prepared for 5th grade with double and triple digit multiplication. Later in the week the students began a STEM activity of designing their own dream playgrounds. They had some pretty creative ideas!
  • Religion: The children created “graffiti” walls on butcher paper of the 7 Sacraments in groups and presented them to the class.
  • Writing: We reviewed for and took our final grammar quiz on sentence diagramming this week. The children did a wonderful job on this!
  • Science: We dissected owl pellets this week!! The children found all sorts of skeletons and tried to reconstruct the creatures. We also learned about fingerprinting and took our fingerprints. The children also enjoyed playing with the Darkling Beetles this week. We had a nice release celebration in our garden on Thursday. It was really hard to say goodbye to our class pets.
  • Social Studies: We wrapped up our Spokane Unit this week with a reflection on our learning. I graded those and they will go home with their report cards.
