December 16-20

Monday: In Bible class, we finished a worksheet on Jeremiah.  In language arts, we picked two activities to do from our vocab tic-tac-toe.  The vocab words were skein, bereft, and grotto.  We got our spelling words, and each person is assigned their homework again this week.  Lastly, we completed exercise 3 in our grammar packet “Crazy Little Apostrophes.”  This afternoon we took a Heritage exam and skimmed through the rest of the unit in science.  We will have a science exam on Thursday of this week.  A study guide will go home tomorrow, but students can look over the unit in their textbook tonight for extra study preparation.

Homework: Spelling homework is due Wednesday (list 2: 21-30 and bonus word appearance).  Science exam on Thursday

Tuesday: We talked about what happened to the remnant in Judah and how they still didn’t listen to Jeremiah.  We started a worksheet on that section of text.  In language arts, we completed exercise 4 and started reading Las Papas and completing the next packet in Esperanza Rising.  In the afternoon, we corrected our Heritage test answers, filled out a science study guide, and went to the computer lab to work on our Veteran’s Day essays.

Homework: Science exam on Thursday

Wednesday: Our chapel speaker today talked about intangible gifts we could receive this Christmas season: the gifts of joy, peace, and love.  In language arts, we went to the computer lab to finish reading Las Papas and filling out the packet.  Once the students were finished with that, they continued to type their essays.  In the afternoon, we read an article about the Great Wall of China.  Did you know that if you put all the sections of the wall together that it would be about 5,500 miles long?  That’s impressive!  We also took some time this afternoon to play a science review game.  The students sounded like they knew their stuff, but remember to keep studying!

Homework: Science exam tomorrow, spelling homework was due today- turn it in if you haven’t already.  Tomorrow we will be working on a model of the Great Wall of China!  Come prepared to build!

Thursday: We are finishing up the unit on the kingdom of Judah today.  Tomorrow we will finish the unit so we can start a new unit when we come back from break!  In language arts, we viewed a PowerPoint on apostrophes and completed a worksheet.  We also worked on a journal over “Las Papas.”  In the afternoon, we took a science test.  Then we worked on creating a model of the Great Wall of China.  In the spirit of Christmas, our building materials were graham crackers and icing.  See the pictures below as we start our project.  We would like to complete the wall tomorrow, so we are accepting graham cracker donations!
