  • Hello Parents!

    Updates & Reminders:

    • Thank you for sending your children in such authentic attire and with old-fashioned lunches on Monday!  A link to some Heritage School pictures will soon be emailed to you.
    • I am still looking for drivers for our brief trip to the museum from 12:45 to 2:00 on November 22nd.  Please let me know if you are available. 
    • Thursday Student Council is sponsoring a Breast Cancer Research fundraiser.  Students can pay $1.00 to support the cause and wear jeans and pink shirts.
    • Thursday is our chapter 3 Science test.
    • Tuesday is our topic 3 Math test.
    • Wednesday is picture re-take day.
    • There will not be Mass on Wednesday because we will be having an All Saints Day Mass next Friday (11/1)
    •  Mass parts will also be distributed on Wednesday (for the Mass on Nov.6) to the children who did not read at the last Mass.
    • Looking ahead:  Next Thursday (10/31) will be the states and capitals of the Northeast test.  Your child has a map of the Northeast in his/her homework folder.  The backside of it has the labels removed so he/she can study from it.

    This week in 4th grade:

    English:  We are studying common and proper nouns. (ch.10)

    Reading:  We are reading the story How to Babysit an Orangutan starting on Monday as we work on summarizing, nonfiction text structures, and defining words through structural analysis. 

    Spelling:  Beginning Monday we will be studying words with the /ou/ sound.  (see below)

    Math:  We are concluding topic 3 by solving word problems that require us to work with place values and patterns. Topic 4 will focus on addition and subtraction of whole numbers (including mental math, estimation, and large sums/differences).

    Religion:  We are studying each of the Ten Commandments and what they mean to us.  So you know, I am combining chapters 3, 11, and 15 since they are all about the Ten Commandments. 

    Science:  We are discussing how ecosystems are balanced and how organisms in these ecosystems interact.  (ch.4)

    Social Studies:  We are studying immigration and Ellis Island, the Women’s Rights and Abolitionist Movements, and vertical timelines.  (ch.5)

     

    Have a great week!
