Christmas Party

Since next week is the last week of school, we will celebrate with a class party before the end of the semester. There will be a sign-up sheet outside our classroom door closer to the time for those who would like to provide food or utensils. In the meantime, though, are any of you interested in helping to organize a fun activity such as a class game or Christmas-themed craft? Please email me this week if you would like to help with anything like that at our party. The students and I would really appreciate it! We would also welcome parents who would like to help serve food and clean up afterward. Thank you very much!

Here’s what we’ll be Learning This Week:

Bible – We are studying Lesson 16, which is about Samuel and his sensitivity to God.

Our memory verse is Micah 6:8, which says, He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Reading and Writing – We’ll continue to learn how to paraphrase quotes and analyze visual elements in a graphic novel. Students will read articles about some famous inventions and use direct quotes to explain the relationships between them.

Grammar – We’ll learn more about subjects and predicates, including the difference between simple and complex subjects. We’ll also learn about conjunctions and interjections.

Spelling – Yellow Group: Sort 44

Pink Group: Sort 58

Blue Group: Sort 12

Math –This week students will learn how to divide decimals by each other and powers of ten.

Science – Students will learn what earth’s four major systems are. We’ll begin by focusing on the geosphere.

Social Studies – We’ll learn more about the events of the Revolutionary War, including the role women played and how the Americans finally won their independence from Great Britain.
