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

Bible – We are studying Lesson 28, about Jeremiah (the “weeping prophet”). This week’s memory verse is Lamentations 3:21-23, which says, Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. (I love that verse!) There will be no Bible verse test this week.

Language Arts – This week we will take the Developmental Reading Assessment to see how students’ reading skills have improved since the beginning of the year.

Spelling – No spelling this week.

Grammar – Students will learn when to use the word good vs. well, bad vs. badly, and can vs. may.

Math – We’re beginning Chapter 11: Measurement. We’ll learn about using logical reasoning, as well as “customary” (American) and metric units of weight and capacity.

Science – We’ll focus on the moon this week: how it moves and how it seems to change from day to day.

Social Studies – We’ll start chapter 8 (Moving West) with a lesson on new inventions in America, as well as new means of transportation. We’ll also touch on the history of Texas and the various trails that American settlers took as they travelled west across the country.
