BOOK SUMMARIES

To clarify...
All fourth graders are expected to read a total of 25 books this year.  They have been informed of this ongoing assignment since September.  They have been asked to complete a book summary form upon completion of reading a book.  About every 100 pages counts toward one book. (Ex. A 375 page book would count as 4 books.)  A book summary form must be filled out for each book read.  They must be neat and complete and should be in cursive. I have given the students a few of these forms in their folder.  More are available in the classroom.  If your child has fallen behind tremendously, a total of 20 books will be accepted.  Please contact me if there is a problem. Also, please sign and return the Book Summary Status form that is taped to your child's folder.
 Thanks for your support.





CASTLE LEARNING ONLINE

Castle Learning Online (CLO).
It is a web-based resource that allows the children to review 
Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English, and Foreign Languages 
from any device that is connected to the internet.

THE MONTH OF MAY IS DEVOTED TO OUR
BLESSED MOTHER, MARY

The Rosary is made up of groups of beads arranged in a circle.
The rosary tells the events in the lives of Mary and Jesus.

It begins with a cross followed by one large bead and three small ones.  The next large bead begins the first "decade".  Each decade consists of one large bead followed by ten smaller beads.
As you pray each decade, think of the appropriate mystery: Joyful Mysteries, Sorrowful Mysteries, Glorious Mysteries, or Mysteries of Light. The prayers of the Rosary include the Sign of the Cross, Apostles' Creed, Our Father, Glory Be, and Hail Mary.
We will learn how to pray the Rosary.
We have a set of rosaries in the classroom.
