November 18-22

Monday: We read about the short reign of Amon in Bible today and also read about how God will forgive our sins if we ask.  Amon had a chance to live for God, but he chose not to take it.  We got our spelling words this week.  They are from list 1: words 30-35, faithfulness, character, shortage, inadequacy and the bonus word condescend.  We worked on grammar with grammar packet on fragments and run-on sentences.  We did two new vocabulary words, phoenix and mortar.  In Heritage, we are starting a new unit on India.  We watched a video that shows the accomplishments of the ancient Indians and gave us a look into the geography and culture of India.  For science, we started a project that we’ll finish tomorrow on creating a clay boat that will be buoyant enough to hold many pennies.

Homework: Fragments and Run-on Sentences Exercise 2 due tomorrow, spelling homework due Wednesday, Science test on Friday- can prepare for that by reading the chapter

Tuesday: We read about Josiah and saw how he was a better king than Manasseh or Amon.  We read Los Higos in language arts and completed a chart on how Esperanza deals with conflict.  We corrected exercise 2 in our Fragments and Run-On Sentences packet.  In the afternoon we created our boats and tested them for buoyancy.  We also drew an enlarged map of India.

Homework: Language arts homework is due tomorrow along with spelling homework

Wednesday: Our chapel speaker talked about the story of the good Samaritan.  He had the students come up with practical ways they can be a good Samaritan to those around them.  In language arts, we discussed the chapter we read yesterday, Los Higos, and completed a worksheet on sentence fragments.  In the afternoon, we worked on a study guide in science and workbook page 33 in Heritage.  We also got a taste of Indian culture by learning some basic Bollywood dance moves (the guys were great sports with this activity)!

Homework: Heritage workbook 33 is due on Friday, Science and spelling test on Friday

Thursday: The computers were down during library today, but I highly encourage doing these activities at home to practice for the exam.

Spelling City: Practice your spelling words

We worked on a Bible crossword about Josiah.  The students reviewed the story and got some practice looking up verses.  We reviewed our sentence fragment worksheet from yesterday in language arts and talked together about symbolism in Esperanza Rising.  In the afternoon we played a review Jeopardy game in science and read the next chapter in Esperanza Rising.  We skipped story and handwriting today to work on language arts.  I wanted to get language arts in today because tomorrow we will take our science test in the morning, as we have the end of the quarter reward that afternoon.

Note: Students who are able to participate in the end of the quarter reward can bring in snacks to share.  The reward is a movie day (rather movie afternoon, it’ll be after lunch).  Those who did not make it this quarter will be in another room to work on make up work.

Homework: spelling and science tests tomorrow!

Friday: We had a spelling test and quick review for the science exam during Bible.  In our regular language arts period, we took our science exam.  The rest of the afternoon was spent watching Monsters University for those who made the end of the quarter reward.  Good job to those who made it this quarter, and those who did not have a chance to make it next quarter!
