This week we made posters for the classrooms at CCLS-U. The posters are about the virtues we have been learning about in our CFP time.
We also looked at some of the famous mountains in the Bible and used Google maps to look at those sites today.
Finally, we started work on the next slide in our Faith Portfolios. We learned a little about the 6 chief parts of the Christian doctrine and then we added information about them to our portfolios.
DON'T FORGET TO GET CAUGHT UP ON MEMORY THIS WEEKEND!
5th GRADE MATH
MATH TEST MONDAY - Today (Friday) we reviewed in class. Students should have their pretest with them to study from.
Take a look at educate and make sure all assignments are turned in! End of the first quarter is Friday, October 14th. All late work needs to be in by that date, or it will be a zero.
ERROR ANALYSIS - In Math class students have an opportunity for some extra credit. We started an activity called error analysis. All students have shared with them a file that helps them complete this activity. By Sunday, students should email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) telling me that they would like me to look at their error analysis file.
Math groups - next week I will be talking to the students about splitting up our math class. Some students will be going into a “Self-Paced” class. Other students will continue in the “Mr. Akerson Paced” class. More details to come.
SERVICE PROJECTS - These are due by Sunday, October 16th. STUDENTS SHOULD SUBMIT THESE IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM. There is a link to a document that they can do their write up on. If they have pictures they can also upload them there.
