This month in Religion we will continue our study of the Beatitudes. We will learn how following these tenets in conjunction with the Commandments helps us to lead better Christian lives. As we continue through Lent, we will also look at the events leading up to Easter Sunday and their importance to our faith.
In Math this month, we will learn the rules for divisibility and how they relate to fractions. We will learn how to compare and find equivalent fractions; how to add, subtract, and multiply them; and how to put them into simplest form.
This month we will look at the earth from the inside out and the changes it goes through to form rocks and various landforms.

Currently in Social Studies, we are looking at how slavery became a dividing issue for the early United States. We will also discover the role that Pennsylvania played in the Civil War.
In Reading this month, we will focus on stories in which the characters are trying to find their place in the world. The students will use the characters and setting to help determine the plot of the story as well as the sequence of events. In English, we will use the writing process to publish both fiction and nonfiction works. In Spelling, the students will focus on prefixes, suffixes, and we will learn to use the VCCV and VCV patterns to help us read and decode words more easily.
