March News From 5M

easter_jesus_carrying_crossMarch came in like a lamb (one day!!) so we better watch out!  February was a very busy month. The students presented their Human Body Systems projects and they were great.   We learned about the Eucharist, and  different types of Prayers . We are still reading The One and Only Ivan. And we had great weather for February vacation.

This month the students will be getting ready for STEM Day.  They will be learning the Engineering Design Process by doing an in class group activity that will take them step by step through the process.  They will then take what they have learned and apply it to something they want to improve, invent, rework, or modify.  They will have a rubric to go along with their project. The projects new date to pass in is March 15.  This is due to the snow storm on March 8. Come and check out their projects on March 15 at 5:30pm.  Then we will start on  learning more about Ecosystems (Chapter 6).

Spelling will be Lessons 20, review of 16-20, 21,22.    Don't forget to practice on spellingcity.com.  It really helps them a lot in their studying since we use the site for their spelling tests on the iPads.

We will focus on Lent, the Triduum, and Easter in Religion.  We have Stations on Fridays at 2:15 on March 23th, 30th,  and Mass on March 16th at 9:15 for our St. Patrick's Day Mass.  Our buddies in 2J and 2C are preparing the Mass.  Please try to join us.

The genre for the March book report is Biography.  The directions went home the week before February vacation.  It is due on March 21st.
