Classroom News: May 29 - June 4
6th Grade Social Studies
It is hard to believe that we are almost finished with this school year. I guess time flies when you are having fun! To finish out our year, we will be discussing the cultural, social, religious, and governmental changes that took place during the Renaissance and Reformation.
7th Grade Religion
As the end of the school year draws near, we will be discussing chapter 23, which focuses on the Holy Spirit and Pentacost. This is such a great chapter for us to end on because it includes information about the fruits of the Spirit, or what we can expect if we are truly living a Christ-like life. As our final activity, the seventh graders will be given six short Bible passages. They will be reflecting on what these passages are calling them to do and be, and they will then write a plan for their spiritual growth over the summer.
It is been a privilege to teach religion to these wonderful young people! I hope that their faith has grown as much as mine has this year!
8th Grade Social Studies
This week includes only two days together in the classroom. What an amazing journey the last three years has been with these incredible young people. As we finish our examination of American history, it is my fervent hope that all of my students understand how privileged we are to to live in this nation. Studying American history is so vital to our development as responsible citizens because as we see time and again throughout our history, every voice matters!
