WEEK OF MAY 7
Thank you for thinking of me each day last week during Teacher Appreciation Week. The candy, the coffee, the spiritual bouquet, the lunch, taking my playground duty, the flowers and the gift card are things that every teacher looks forward to. I am blessed to work with and for such loving families. May God's peace be with you always.
We're still forging ahead with a vengeance, making an attempt to fulfill our goals for the year.
RELIGION - Our plan is to complete our study of the Ten Commandments before the year ends. Presently we are studying the Ninth and Sixth Commandments.
LANGUAGE ARTS - We are working hard to follow the adventures of a little mouse, as we read "The Tale of Despereaux". The students are being made aware of the sequence of events through timelines made for the main characters. There will be no spelling list this week, but we will have a vocabulary word to create a story around. Our word this week is "heirloom".
MATH - We're touching on review topics this week. We will try our skills at averaging, finding mean, median and mode and recognizing geometric solids and prisms.
SOCIAL STUDIES - We have completed our study of Ohio History and now we are moving on to complete our study of the regions of the U.S.. For the next week and a half we will be looking at the Southwest Region and discovering the characteristics of that region.
