May 18-22

Monday: We have snow!  This morning, we talked about how Paul introduced revolutionary ideas about Christianity.  We also read in Acts 21-22 about Paul’s dangerous trip to Jerusalem and the mob mentality of the people there.  During language arts, we filled out a vocab sheet previewing new words we’ll encounter in our next short story.  We read for the rest of language arts.  This afternoon, we worked on our last spelling list of the year!  We’re on list 7: #1-10 and chose our very last spelling activity for Monday’s grammar mini.  After that we took a science exam and turned in study guides.  The last thing we did today was complete a history frame over the Watergate Scandal and read about President Ford.

President Carter’s look-a-like?


NOTE: Our field trip is tomorrow!  We will be leaving at 10:30 to visit Camp Rabideau, we’ll have lunch there, head over to Blackduck’s history center at 1, and come back to school in time for the afternoon bus.  The forecast for tomorrow says partly cloudly and 0% precipitation.  Let’s hope that’s the case after a week of rain!  Either way, dress appropriately and bring a sack lunch/drink.  We will not be rescheduling.

Tuesday: We worked on visualization of yesterday’s reading in Bible.  The students went to math, and then we left for our field trip.  We had nice weather and positive attitudes!  We arrived back at school with extra time, so we played outside for the remainder of the day.

Homework: Last spelling homework of the year is due tomorrow

Wednesday: Our chapel speaker taught us a cadence this morning to remember the fruits of the spirit.  We ended chapel early and looked in 2 Peter 1 to see Peter’s order, noticing that self-control comes early on in maturing as a Christian.  In language arts, we finished reading “Monsters are Due on Maple Street.”  We noticed similarities between this story and Paul and talked about conformity of a crowd.  We went over possible themes and filled out a character profile sheet.  During grammar mini, we completed a Bell Work activity.  We read about the 80’s in Heritage and did a worksheet to review the reading.  The last thing of the day was planning out a design for a marshmallow challenge.  We don’t have enough time to start another science unit, so we’re doing activities until the end of the year.  Tomorrow students will be constructing spaghetti noodle towers to see which group can build the tallest free standing structure.

Homework: Character profile sheets are due on Friday

Thursday: This morning we read in Acts to find out what happened to Paul when he faced the Sanhedrin.  Later on we watched the 1960 Twilight Zone episode of “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street.”   We filled out an organizer comparing the story and television adaptation, which was a challenge since they had very few differences.  In the afternoon, we practiced our Spanish tongue twister song and watched an episode of Pocoyo.  If any students are serious about learning the language this summer, I recommend watching children’s programs in Spanish.  We also filled out a study guide for Heritage and competed to build the tallest noodle structure.

Homework: Character profile sheets are due tomorrow with a spelling test.  Heritage short essay exam will be on Tuesday and study guides will be due that day also

Friday: This morning we read to the end of Acts.  During language arts, we had an ice cream social with the Kindergarteners to celebrate a year of reading buddies.  We took our final spelling test, turned in spelling books, and played a game of jeopardy to review the year.  In the afternoon, we played an uno game with suffixes and prefixes.  We also reviewed for Tuesday’s Heritage test and completed an activity on alien visitors.
