This week

Math: We are coming to the end of Chapter 10 but I do not think we will make it to the geometry section of the math book.  If that is the case, I will send home the math book with your children but they will not have a geometry grade on the report card (so sad).

Spelling: For the last spelling list of the year, we are working on Unit 31: Frequently misspelled words.  I sent home a list of 100 common words in the Wednesday envelope for some of the students to study over the summer.

Writing: Students are working on their letter to Father Scott or another letter to another person…

History: Students are comparing Alexander Hamilton to Thomas Jefferson and their views of what they thought the U.S. government should look like.

Religion: Family Life Unit Lesson 5 on New Life.  Next week we will be covering anatomy and physiology, so it might be a good idea to talk to your child about reproduction before I do (as it is a bit of a shock for students to hear from it for the first time from someone other than a parent).  Yes, that happened before and it was mighty uncomfortable for those students.

Specialists:

Music: This week, students are putting final touches and performing their partner compositions using chord progressions we’ve been studying in class.

In Physical education students will continue to improve Lacrosse skills by playing games and drills. Students are expected to continue to improve skills and practice sportsmanship.  SLE An engaged active life-long learner is an independent, self-motivated learner.
