October 5-9

Monday: This morning we finished reading Genesis 9 and started a worksheet over these few chapters we’ve read.  In language arts, we listened to the audio of chapters 13-14 (we’re almost finished with the book!).  We worked on our mentor sentence for the week by making observations on the sentence.  We started music for the first time today, which throws off our schedule for the day.  We had a significantly shortened recess before music class.  Afterwards, we talked through our spelling list for the week (List 9: #31-40) and practiced the words on our own or with a friend.  In Heritage we watched the video below, read to page 25, and completed workbook page 18.  Lastly, we wrote a thank you letter to Hoff’s Rock Shop for letting us come and visit last Friday.

Homework: Heritage Workbook page 18 is due Wednesday.  Spelling homework is due Thursday

Tuesday: We finished our Bible worksheet today and read about the Tower of Babel.  In language arts, we went over the parts of speech in our mentor sentence. We took notes on gerunds and participles.  If you want to learn more information about gerunds, click this gerund link.  If you want to learn more about participles, click this participle link.  During grammar mini, the students added 2 more vocab words to their vocab journals.  Some students have misplaced their journals.  I won’t grade these until we’ve finished the book, so they will need to be redone if lost.  Afterwards, we tried some food from ancient Mesopotamia and wrote a formula poem.  Then we went to the computer lab to work on rock identification activities.

Homework: Noah’s ark Bible worksheet is due Thursday with spelling homework

Wednesday: We didn’t have chapel today, so we worked on make up Bible worksheets and played a game.  In language arts, we finished Old Yeller and talked about the ending of the book while working on our mentor sentence.  We completed a study guide in science and rewrote our Mesopotamia poems.  During library we went out to the computer lab, worked on study guides, and played Moby Max.  Students can work on Mobymax.com at home.  Almost everyone’s username and password are their first name without an caps.

Homework Science test on Friday

Thursday: This morning we did a reader’s theater piece in our Bible textbooks and started a new worksheet on Abraham and Isaac.  In the afternoon, the students started their last literature group discussion and completed their mentor text worksheet for the week.  We read about jobs in Mesopotamia and completed a quiz.
