We had a full week last week…slowly getting into routines too. I am thoroughly enjoying this class and it’s a treat to be with them each day. 🙂
We have begun our study on Ancient Egypt – looking at present-day Egypt and examining the geography of Ancient Egypt. Next week we will do some “stations” activities to look at other aspects of Ancient Egypt before embarking on some group projects about various pharaohs.
LANGUAGE ARTS: We are doing a mini-unit about “comparing and contrasting” as well as starting our spelling program. The first test will be on Wednesday…students will need to write the word correctly as well as write the word in a sentence to show they understand the meaning. This week we are reviewing and focusing on the short “a, e, i” sounds.
- We have started Student-Led Devos. Sunnee is up this week (Sept. 24th).
- BMV: John 10:10 – “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
- We’ve started a youth Bible study called “Forged” – looking into what the Bible tells us about TRUTH.
We have talked about Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset as well as creating SMART goals.
TO MAKE NOTE:
