February News from 6E

Catholic Schools Week takes place during the first week in February.  On Monday, we have our Day of Faith.  It began with a mass that was prepared by 5M and 2J.  We decorated our bulletin board with a blackboard and inspirational quotes from our patron saint, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.  On Tuesday, January 30th we will have our School Spirit Day.  Show your HUSKY PRIDE! We will also write paragraphs about why we love St. Chris.  We will have a Spanish rosary on Wednesday, January 31st.   The 6th grade has also been invited to attend Mass at BG on Wednesday.  On Thursday we have Beach Day!  Come in your favorite floral shirts and sunglasses!  We will have ice cream sundaes, thanks to the hot lunch program.  Yummy! On Friday we have PJ day with our buddies.  We start the day with bowling and end the day with a movie and popcorn.

In Spelling we will cover lessons 20, 21, 22 and 23.  Don’t forget to study the words each week.  The words can be tricky.  If the book is forgotten at school, the list can be found at www.spellingcity.com.

In Religion we will continue studying the Old Testament.  Chapters 12, 15, 16, and 17 will be our focus.  We will learn about prophets and proverbs.

In Literature we will continue reading My Side of the Mountain.  While reading the story and completing activities, we have also been watching the movie with our fellow classmates in 6W.  We will compare and contrast the movie and the book.

In Math the 6th grade will finish their fraction unit.  We are currently adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers.  They will apply their knowledge of addition and subtraction of fractions to solving algebraic equations.  Before February is through, we will also multiply and divide fractions and mixed numbers.  As a reminder, extra help is every Wednesday morning at 8 AM.  Please focus on sections K and L on www.ixl.com/signin/stchris.

The 5th grade will finish their decimal unit in Math.  They will study multiplication and division of decimals.  Extra help is every Monday at 8 AM.  Please focus on sections I and J on www.ixl.xom/signin/stchris.

What a busy month!  It is a good thing that we close the month with a much needed February Vacation.
