St. Mary's Samplings
Kindergarten: It was a short week due to no school on Monday and Tuesday but we still did our work. We worked with the letters O and F and practiced our words. We are anxious for Catholic Schools Week next week with the kick off being Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Mass and a pancake breakfast.
Grade 1: Brrr! What a cold week! We are working hard with our short week. We are learning words with the long /o/ sound, long /u/ sound and long /e/ sound this week and next week. We are working on teen addition and subtraction in math. We are getting really excited for Catholic Schools Week.
Grade 2: We have had a short week. We are beginning a math unit on graphs. This week we learned to read a picture graph and to solve problems using the picture graph. In science, we are learning about ways our earth changes. We learned that floods and earthquakes are examples of quick changes, and erosion is an example of a slow change.
Grade 3: With another short school week we kept busy getting as much class work done as we could. We continued to work on our multiplication and division facts in math. We attended the Geography Bee on Thursday and look forward to the chance to be part of it when we are in fourth grade. We completed our poster for the Eagles "My Hometown" contest. Our tin punching is done for our Pie Safe Project for the auction dinner. We are looking forward to seeing the finished product that Josh Fischer is building for us! We are excited about all the fun activities that are planned for our Catholic Schools Week celebration next week!
Grade 4: The fourth graders read a story called "Dear Mrs. Larue." The genre of this story was fantasy. We learned how you can take clues from text and draw conclusions to help us understand a story better. In English we are learning the difference between proper and common nouns. We are hoping the weather cooperates for our ski trip this week!
Grade 5: The fifth graders have been learning about the northeast states and their capitals. They have also started a chapter on fractions in math class. We have been reviewing numerators and denominators and have started to compare fractions with like and unlike denominators. We are getting fired up to celebrate our Catholic Schools Week next week!
Grade 6: The sixth graders have returned from their Wolf Ridge trip and we are back working hard. In science we started talking about weather patterns. In math the sixth graders are working with ordered pairs and line graphs. We also are starting to work on our barn wood bench for the auction dinner. We are eager for Catholic Schools Week and are looking forward to the many fun events planned.
