Week of October 24

It was so very nice to meet up with parents during our conferences last week. Thank you for taking the time to come or to notify me by e-mail. If there is someone who would like to connect/chat/e-mail me about their child, please do not hesitate to contact me!
A big "thank you" goes out to Fr. Chris, who came into the classroom to bless our rosaries. Before he would bless them, he gave the kiddos an informal quiz on the rosary. You would have been very proud of them. They impressed Fr. with their knowledge!!!
Here's what the week should look like:
Math - 7y - We have finally moved into Chapter 2 - Integers. We will be adding and subtracting integers!
Math - 7X - We start the week estimating square roots and learning how to factor them. Toward the end of the week, we look at cube roots!
Math - 6X - The 6th graders will be using Math on Monday as the Tech Day they earned during the Run4Fun campaign. The rest of the week we will continue our work with decimals - adding and subtracting. Look for a quiz on Wednesday or Thursday.
Reading - We are finishing our second novel, A Year Down Yonder and looking at elements of a story, particularly point of view and tone/mood of a story.
Religion - We take a look at Noah and the Tower of Babel, finishing up Chapter 4. Chapter 5 is a review unit that will prepare the students for a test over Unit 1. We will also prepare for hosting Mass for All Saints Day!
