Cantors




Math: We will begin a long unit on adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers, before we multiply and divide fractions. We found equivalent fractions before  break, and this week we will place fractions in simplest form, estimate sums and differences of fractions, find more equivalent fractions, then find the sums of fractions with unlike denominators.

Religion: We will first learn about  the season of Christmas as the season of love.The liturgies of Christmas help us to celebrate the ways  the Son of God was manifested to our world. We honor Saint Stephen on December 26th, and St. Thomas Becket of Canterbury on December 29th, to help us to remember that following Christ may require martyrdom.

We  honor St. John the Evangelist on December 27th,  who reminds us Jesus, the Word made Flesh, lived among us. We then honor Mary on January 1st, and the  Magi on January 6th. In our homes we are called to reveal Christ to the world. We will learn that we show  generosity when we recognize all gifts come from God, and during Christmas we celebrate God’s generosity of sending his Son to us. We, in turn, are asked to live the spirit of generosity to others.

Science: We will begin the week by implementing the design process. We will read an article on hulls and boat design, then draw several models of boats that will carry the most cargo, build one, then test the  model. Students may redesign once. Then, we will find the class mean, median, and range of the cargo of pennies. We will next study phase changes learning the qualities of solids, liquids, and gases.

Reading/Writing/Grammar:  We will be reading They Called Her Molly Pitcher? We will be working on conclusions and generalizations this week.  Reading, Spelling, vocab test Friday. 

Vocab and Spelling Words: Know definitions of words: strategy, magnificent, foes, shimmering, gushed..
