5th AKERSON CHAPEL
Next Wednesday my homeroom will be helping leading chapel. The main way will be through videos that I will be able to share with all parents. If you are able, you are most welcome to join us!
5th Grade NEWSPAPER
Students should have an idea of who they would like to interview for their next newspaper assignment. The interviewee needs to be 75 years or older. They PRACTICED writing emails requesting the interview last week. This week’s assignment is to develop 5 questions that they will be prepared to ask in the interview. Students who need help finding someone to interview need to let me know next week and I will help them find someone.
This week we looked who the devil is and how we can fight him off. We talked about focusing in our prayer life, studying the word of God and being ASSURED that we are (Say it with me) Children of God, loved and saved by Jesus!
Next week’s memory is John 14:2-3 and two verses of Abide with Me
DON’T FORGET SERVICE PROJECTS
On each of the past two Fridays we have taken some time to prepare for the Achievement Tests that are coming in the first week of May. Each week we’ll talk about some material that may not be covered at all before the tests, or covered right about the time we take the tests, along with test taking skills.
NO XTRAMATH REQUIRED NEXT WEEK.
We will continue with our regular lessons next week.
7th Grade SOCIAL STUDIES
Students completed their Aurasma project this week. I WAS SO PROUD OF THEM! The room has 35+ pictures hanging up, and students can use the Aurasma app, point the camera at each picture and watch a brief video explaining the Chinese invention or discovery pictured! It was so cool to see this in action. (Check out my Twitter feed for a pic) Mr. Adler’s class will get to do this Wednesday.
TEST NEXT WEEK - Spanger - Thursday and Adler - Friday. Students did (or will) create their own study guide in class. Students can also be studying the multiple choice quizzes and vocabulary quizzes from Chapters 15 and 17. (Mr. Adler’s quizzes are in their mailboxes)
Be studying a little each night before the test. Look over our ISN and quizzes. Think about our in-class activities. Why did we do them? What were the rules, etc.?
Blessings on your prep. Be sure to email me any questions about the test you may have!
Have a great weekend.
