Expectations for the week.

 

Holy Week is considered the most Holy Time of the Church year.  I am asking my families to participate in as many services this week.  Holy Thursday Mass is in the evening.  Please attend.  This Mass represents the Washing of the feet, and the Last Supper Jesus had with his Disciples.    Good Friday prays the Passion.  It is not a Mass.  I encourage you to attend this Service.    Saturday night is the blessing of the fire, RCIA candidates are welcomed as full members of the Catholic Church.  A really cool Mass if you have never experienced one.   And Sunday morning is Easter Sunday.  Please either attend Saturday night or Easter Sunday.  Your children need to know that attending Mass is important especially this time of year.

 

Spelling words have a long i pattern.  They have -igh or y in them.  The following words need to be reviewed:  find, kind, night , right, by and my.  Review words low and boat  and high frequency words never and head.

 

We are working on adjectives that compare with er and est.  Example Matt’s bike is older than Brenda’s bike.

 

Matt’s bike is the oldest bike of all.

 

The er added to an adjective compare 2 nouns.  An est added to an adjective compare more than two nouns.

 

Math we will finish up geometry.  We will continue working on subtracting 2 digit numbers with regrouping.

 

Just a reminder that every Thursday children need to have a current event.  We had some very good discussion this past week.  Write a sentence or two to help your child remember what they have.

 

May God bless each of you.
