I was very proud of the 5th grade for how well the did their service project as a class on Thursday. They were such a blessing to everyone at the elementary school by cleaning/organizing all the technology carts along with other tasks.
Week 17 (AND LAST OF 2nd quarter) is due this coming week. (Due 12/18)
Close of the commandments, its meaning and two verses of O Come, All ye Faithful.
Many students are missing weeks of memory. Students will begin writing the memory for partial credit this week if it is not said at home.
Students began a “mini-project” on the prophecies of Jesus and his birth. They will use a new website called emaze.com for this project. These will be due on December 18th.
This week we looked at Jesus healing, praying and preaching. We had a (I think) GREAT quiet prayer time, in a dark, quiet sanctuary.
Next week we’ll look at the birth of Jesus.
We tackled Investigation 5 this week, along with regular lessons and tests.
Next week both groups will have one last test before the end of 2nd quarter.
We are really getting into new and harder material. It is critical to continue to work on the math facts, along with getting all daily work and practice finished.
7th Grade Social Studies
Map tests are graded and in. For those students who did not do so well, I wrote “SEE ME” on their test. Students who come and talk to me will have an opportunity to improve their score. There were about 10 perfect tests between the two groups!
Good job to those of you who took advantage of the extra credit. It helped!
This week we also did a trading simulation game about Ghana and trans-Saharan trade. This will lead us into our study of Ghana.
Students will have a unit test over chapters 11 and 12. Adler’s class will be on Friday, 12/15 and Spangler’s class will be on Monday, 12/18. There will be a study guide coming this weekend. Watch for it on Google Classroom.
We will review in class on the day before their test.
Blessings on your weekend.
