Happy Birthday …
…to James! He’s turning eleven this Thursday.
Here’s what we’ll be Learning This Week:
Bible – We are studying Lesson 22, which is about Absalom and his rebellion. Our memory verse is John 14:6-7, which says, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Language Arts – We’ll learn to paraphrase quotes and analyze visual elements in the graphic novel we’re studying. In addition, we’ll review how to evaluate websites to see if they’re trustworthy and to find ones most likely to be helpful for specific purposes.
Spelling – Blue Group: sort 28
Yellow Group: sort 25
Pink Group: sort 51
Green Group: sort 15
Math – We’re starting a new chapter: Addition and Subtraction of Fractions. We’ll be using a different curriculum for this chapter, with online activities and worksheets instead of our workbooks.
Science – Students will learn about the amount of water on Earth and where it’s found, and they’ll make graphs to present the information.
Social Studies – We’ll learn about America’s first president and how he took office.
