Week of February 13

We have a four-day week ahead of us. Here's what's going on:
Religion -  We are discussing the mercy of our Heavenly Father and have invited Fr. Chris to come into the classroom to discuss the beauty and necessity of the Sacrament of Reconciliation!
Math - 7Y - We are finishing up our chapter on proportions. This week we are working with what makes a figure similar to another and then move into scale drawings. They will spend some time mapping out our classroom!
Math - 7X - We are working on figuring the volume of three dimensional figures! We will spend Monday creating ORTHOGONAL VIEWS of boxes and cylinders! (Orthogonal views are flat drawings of a three dimensional object.)
Math - 6X - We are working on graphing shapes on coordinate graphs and then seeing what happens to their coordinates when moving them different ways.
Reading - All 6th graders will have their Vocab Workshop Unit 9 test on Thursday.  We finished My Side of the Mountain and will be moving into a new novel. In the meantime, the students are working on their Genius Project...reading and taking notes.
