January 4-8

Monday: This morning we finished our packets in Bible on Daniel.  Students should make sure the packet is filled out (aside from Daniel and the Lions’ Den) and turned in.  In language arts, we started a new grammar unit.  The students did group work with fragments, run-on sentences, and complete sentences.  They finished with a tic-tac-toe game and an exit ticket.  This afternoon was spent on our annual geography.  Congratulations to the 10 finalist!  We will finish the bee tomorrow afternoon.  We also discussed science fair.  Students should bring in questions they interested in by Friday so we can decide as a class what we’d like to do.

Homework: Spelling List 11: #11-20 (Spelling homework is due Thursday), science fair submissions are due by Friday

Tuesday:  Copy and paste the username and password into the website, then go to students, and click on your name.  In the morning we started the book of Esther and learned about 4 types of sentences.  We viewed a PowerPoint, created our own sentences, and listened to the song below.  In art class, we drew henna designs on paper hands and finished the Geography Bee.  Only students from our class placed!  Finally, we reviewed science concepts that we haven’t gone over since before Christmas break.

Friday: This morning we read about Haman’s Plot against the Jews in Esther.  Then we took a spelling test, had reading buddies, and learned about implied subjects in imperative sentences.  This afternoon, we read about Buddha, watched the video below, and completed a workbook page comparing Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.  We also took a closer look at The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path.  Then we voted on science fair and determined that we will do a class project on cardboard boats and their buoyancy.

Homework: Heritage workbook page 77 is due Monday

Note: Students received missing reports and should be working on work.  The end of the quarter is January 29th (in 3 weeks)
