This week we looked at the Gospel in contrast to the law.
In CFP we talked about Moses. Be sure to see the Character Connection email that came out earlier in the week so you can discuss this at home as well.
Next week’s memory is the fourth commandment and its meaning.
This week we started our math splits. I cannot stress enough that this is a learning style split only. Students will notice that the math menu will look a little different. Be sure to look at the correct menu when looking for what to do.
Students took a math test this week. They should get those returned to them early this week.
It may be a little while before there are grades in for math in second quarter. It will take me a little while to get Educate setup for the two different math groups in each class. As soon as I can, I will get grades in. If anything concerning happens with grades, I will most certainly be in touch.
Math in the second quarter and beyond will get more and more difficult. I have tried to teach students some attack strategies for when this happens. They should try the problem, then look at their notes, then look at examples of the same types of problems worked out in the book.
Xtramath - If students have not already made it there, I will be moving all students into multiplication practice. I want the students to have 3 quarters of good multiplication practice. Xtramath is strictly for practice purposes. Students are only evaluated on if they are practicing once a day on five days during a week.
7th GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES
I am very excited to start our class campaign this week. There are 3 political parties, (Eddies, United Force and running for the presidency of “GRISWOLDIA.” Through this 3 week project I am hoping to have the students experience many aspects of the election process. It will culminate on November 8th with our all school election. All the students, teachers, staff and PARENTS will vote on that day. Watch your email for campaign ads, debates and more over the coming weeks. We need your vote!
Blessings on your week.
