Good afternoon,

We have been making great progress working with division this past week in math class, so much so that we will have a special challenge for the scholars this coming week. In science we have been working on using magnets to identify materials with iron or steel in them. In reading we are exploring poetry and historical fictions. In religion we are studying the significance of Advent. In social studies we were exploring the changes in Maryland following the revolutionary war. In grammar we wrapped up our study of adjectives and moved on to begin studying verbs.

This week we will continue to study division we will even be challenging our class to work with two digit divisiors. In science we will experiment with breaking the magnetic force. In reading we will be summarizing "The Hatmaker's Sign" and using the reading strategy make judgements and decisions. In religion we will be talking about how to prepare for Jesus and looking at the advent calendar. In social studies we will discuss the War of 1812 and it's aftermath. In grammar we will continue to study verbs, we will also have our adjective test on Wednesday 12/7/16.

Thank you,

Mr. Pace
