October 12-14

Monday: Today we read together in Exodus.  Our curriculum skips from Noah to Moses and focuses on the covenant between God and the people.  In language arts, we went over our final group assignment, which will be an 8-12 minute presentation.  Each student chose their role (most will have 2 roles) and started work.  We continued this into grammar mini.  In science the students read the first two pages in our new unit on fossils.  We took a pop quiz over the information.  In Heritage we wrote our names and a short message in cuneiform.  Click here for an article describing their language.  We also had a chance to try out our cylinder seals.  The ones that worked the best had deeper and wider impressions.

Tuesday: We started a Bible worksheet over the information we covered in class yesterday.  In language arts, we started viewing the movie Old Yeller and completing a short assignment comparing/contrasting the book with the movie.  In the afternoon, we viewed a PowerPoint on they types of fossils and took a look an example of cast and molds.  We then went out to the computer lab to work on information about ziggurats.

Wednesday: The Gideons handed out Bibles during chapel this morning and talked about discerning God’s will.  We had science this morning where we read about attempts to bring back wooly mammoths, discussed our views, and wrote a short reflection.  In the afternoon, we went over prepositions and infinitive verbs during grammar mini.  We finished watching the movie Old Yeller and completed the worksheet Movie vs Book.  Lastly, the students did extra cleaning for the long weekend.

Homework: Students were given missing work updates during library.  I hope those will go home and assignments will come back next week

Enjoy your days off!
