This week we made it to lesson 20. On Thursday students were given a worksheet with one of each of the types of problems we have been working with this year. They are to complete it and turn it in my Monday. (Many finished in class)
I will then use that to see what needs to be retaught and still practiced.
This is also serving as our pre-test for test #3. On Monday, we’ll go over all the types of problems that will be on the test for Tuesday. SO THERE IS A TEST TUESDAY. Notes 11-15 will be checked at that time.
We will be doing our second Pirate Challenge on Thursday.
QUICK REMINDER Everyday I update the Math Menu. This is a listing of that day’s assignment and everything we did in class. This can be found on our class website - http://cclsakerson.weebly.com/5th-math.html
The math textbook can also be found on that page.
If you forget a math sheet and need to print one, that is found on that page as well.
I have also uploaded all that information to Google Classroom. Students can go to their math class in Google Classroom and click on the “ABOUT” tab. There you will find all the same information.
This past week we finished up our discussion of the four Gospels. Students used word cloud generators to look at the story of Jesus feeding the 5000. Then they discussed similarities and differences between the four accounts.
Next week students will be studying the story of Jacob wrestling with God in CFP.
Mr. Butterfield sent out an awesome family companion to our CFP lessons this week. See if the students can lead your family through the lesson.
A quick reminder that the Memory can be found on our class website - http://cclsakerson.weebly.com/5th-discipleship.html
This week’s memory is Lift High the Cross, verses 1 and 2.
GENIUS HOUR OLYMPICS
On Tuesday we will host our very own CCLS 5th Grade Olympics. The students have created their own events. Staple Archery, Book Sock Throwing and Pape-ball just to name a few.
Watch Twitter to see updates and highlights!
7th SOCIAL STUDIES
This week we students finished up presentations about life in medieval towns. We also started our chapter on the decline of feudalism. (Chapter 5)
Next week we will prepare for our first big unit test of the year. It will cover chapters 2, 4 and 5. Students were given a study guide in Google Classroom. This is not an assignment, only a guide for their study. We will go over it in class together. I do recommend that the students look it over, begin to find all the information listed and think about what we did in class to study the information.
Tests will be Monday October 3rd (Adler) and Tuesday, October 4th (Spangler).
Next week we will be doing some acting in class! Should be fun!
Have a blessed weekend.
