Week of Sept. 6

I wanted to thank you for all of your support on the night of Meet the Teacher! It was wonderful to see everyone again! This week will be a quick on because of the Labor Day holiday and an early dismissal on Friday. By class, here is how the week looks:
7Y Math - Working on scientific notation; doing some technology lab with graphing calculators and finishing the week with order of operations review. I will be checking notebooks this week!
7X Math - We are working on integers this week, reviewing adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them. There will be a quiz on Friday to assess skills.
6X Math - We are working on order of operation this week and looking to have a quiz Thursday and I will take a look at notebooks.
6X - Religion - We discuss how God reveals His plan to us. We are also taking a look at what the Old Testament is and WHERE it is. Our prayer journals have also been used as we are writing reflections from Mass as we work on deepening our relationship with Jesus.
6th Grade - Reading - We are moving through our novel, A Long Way from Chicago have had very interesting discussions about Richard Pecks hilarious Grandma Dowdel! The talk has focused about what is making her such an interesting character and trying to discover some of Mr. Peck's talent for creating such a unique character. We are also working on our first Vocabulary Workshop unit. The test for this unit has been moved to Monday! 
Just a side note: Tomorrow is the Feast of Mary's Birth. Wish all those named Mary a happy feast day!
