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

Bible – We are continuing to learn about Moses, focusing this week on how he feared God, in the sense of respecting Him (lesson 7). Our memory verse for the week is Joshua 1:9, which says, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.            

Reading and Writing – We’re continuing to read Esperanza Rising. Students will learn to compare and contrast characters and quote accurately from a text.

Spelling – No spelling test this week! Students will take an assessment to determine the types of spelling patterns they struggle with, and starting next week, they will be placed in separate groups to work on those specific types of words.

Math – We are continuing Chapter 3, in which we will learn to estimate quotients, use the Distributive Property, and divide with three- and four-digit dividends.

Science – We’re learning about chemical changes and signs that can identify them, as well as what mixtures are. We may do a hands-on activity to investigate the different states of matter.

Social Studies – We’ll be learning more about the original 13 colonies; specifically, about what daily life was like for people in them.
