Week of August 24

Welcome back to our first full week of school! Hope everyone had a relaxing summer and ready to learn new things.I am excited to meet your children. They seem ready to go! Here's what's going on in 5A this week:

Religion: We are beginning our first unit and the first chapter. The children will be reviewing some doctrinal content as far as discussing about who Jesus is and identifying His ministry.
Language Arts: We will be starting our WoW vocabulary and writing paragraphs using these words. We are also taking a look at short vowel sound patterns in our spelling list this week.
Math: Again, we will be introducing our first chapter in Math. The students will be transitioning into traditional math this year.
Science: This first week we will be mapping the sun and trying to work on variables in a science experiment. We will see how this goes...they seem very eager to begin.
Just a heads up...I have scheduled a field trip to the Observatory of Cincinnati on Thursday, September 17th. Details will follow, but thought you might want to look at your schedules to see if you could join us for look at the sun! (Start praying now that the weather cooperates!)
