A Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel for the freedom of the Catholic Church in America
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

There are twelve words on the list, 10 spelling words that are in conjunction with our phonics that week and 2 word wall words. While your child will learn more than 2 word wall words, they will only be tested on two. The Challenge Words are optional words that your child can be tested on. EVERYONE will take the regular spelling test but it is up to you to have your child take the Challenge Words spelling test. They are extra and do not count against your child!!
Math: We will finish our graphing unit this week. The students will think of a question, three replies, make predictions, and ask the other students their question. They will then gather their data, tally it, and then graph it. They will then find two things that they learned about their graph. We will then move onto 3D shapes.
