Week of February 12, 2017

4-2 Reading: 
This week the students will continue making their Figurative Language Shoe Box. They will create sentences using similes, metaphors, hyperboles, personification, and onomatopoeia. Our finished product will be a "Valentine Mailbox Box!"

The students will then prepare for the NYS ELA exam by reading passages and answering questions from last years state test. This will allow them to become familiar with the format of the test, and the types of questions asked.

Just a reminder, by now all students should have begun reading the novel Glory Be. Please be sure to complete the study guide packet as you read.  A copy of the study packet is located under the resources section of this website. The study packet is due by February 28th and the novel test will take place on March 1st.

4th Grade ELA
This week we will begin a new unit on verbs. We will focus on action, being, and the principal parts of a verb.

5th Grade ELA
With so many students out sick last week, and then the snow storm, the verb test has been postponed to Friday, February 17th.

Extra help will be held this Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. for any student who wishes to attend.

The students will continue reviewing and practicing the Parts of the Mass this week.

Our next school Mass which is March 1st, will be hosted by the fourth grade. Please mark your calendars as we are hoping you will join us in our celebration.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
