I cannot express how sad I am that Jace is moving. That being said, I know that he will be an incredible blessing to his new school, new classmates, and new teacher. To Jace the math teacher, my-random-subject-of-the-day-at-the-traffic-loop-sign-buddy, possible future priest, student-extraordinaire, and to his whole family, God bless you in your new home. Please keep us updated with emails and tourist-y pictures!
Thank you for the Christmas presents, Christmas cards, and SCRIP. Your generosity, kindness, and thoughtfulness are so appreciated!
I pray that all of you have a safe, blessed, and peaceful Christmas. Happy Birthday, Jesus! For all of my students, their parents, grandparents, and extended family, I hope that you all have a Happy New Year filled with strong faith, good health, and abundant blessings. Here comes 2020!!!
Math: Story problems using the Fantastic Five Steps (that nobody likes to do, but are incredibly helpful)
Spelling/Writing/ELA: no spelling list this week, creative writing based on the Nativity, correlative conjunctions
Literacy: finished reading the book, “Number the Stars” and working on the final exam for said book
Religion: Chapter 9, reading about God’s Word, practicing our Christmas Program song, making Christmas presents for special people, reading Scripture to go along with our Jesse Tree, understanding the tradition of the Advent Wreath
Social Studies: presenting awesome timelines of historical events from 1500-1776. When students return, we will begin our Holocaust unit on January 6 with Mrs. Mura. She is a retired Assumption teacher who began the Holocaust unit many years ago. If you have any questions or concerns about this unit, please email me. We maintain an age appropriate curriculum but it is a very intense and tragic subject matter.
STEAM: looking at the Big Dipper to study luminosity and light years of stars
Physical Education: Students did bobsledding with mats and scooters! I WANT to be in Mrs. Campbell’s class!!!
Art: Some fifth grade artists are finishing their posada art piece while others will illustrate a hope for the world art piece.
For other specialists’ classes, please see the teachers’ webpages.
