Mrs. Grande's Classroom Community
Happy New Year! We are excited to be back and settling into our routine again in the new year. We are learning new and challenging things every day and our class is continuing to work hard.
02/17~ Catholic schools week was a tremendous success. The fourth grade decorated their prayer boxes beautifully. The boxes were filled with cards and food pantry contributions and were delivered to the local churches. We celebrated Mass on Monday and filled the week with activities surrounding the theme of Knowledge, Faith and Service.
In Reading we are moving on to Chapters 3 and 4 in our story, Bunnicula. The students are continuing to learn how to answer comprehension questions after reading a passage of text.
The class has also been assigned a book report on an adventure story. They are choosing some really excellent books!
Any student who wishes to participate in the Monster Poem contest should be working on their final drafts to hand in this week.
In Math, the students are continuing to review word problems in which they must decipher the necessary action and then execute to find the answer. We have begun to introduce factors leading into the next segment.
In Religion we are learning about sacraments and the Beatitudes.
Even though the Groundhog said 6 more weeks of winter-we are keeping our thoughts towards Spring!
Paper Towels and tissues are in short supply. During cold and flu season we go through these items quickly. All donations are greatly appreciated and we thank you for your past contributions!
