Please attempt to download Google Classroom from Self-service on your child's iPad this weekend. We are trying to set these up for each class. Through Google Classroom, kids will be able to complete quizzes, answer questions, get announcements...all kinds of cool stuff. We do realize there have been some issues, but if possible, try!
Upcoming Tests: Solomon Bible (Tuesday)
AR Goal this quarter is 100,000 words. Please encourage your children to read at least twenty minutes every night. I know we are all very busy, but study after study shows the importance of reading every night. The more vocabulary and critical thinking skills that our kids do, the better they will perform in all of their subjects!
-Solar System Model (a hard copy of the rubric is in their FRIDAY FOLDER)
Please make sure they decide what kind of model they will make and what they will need to make it THIS WEEKEND.
This is a Test grade and I can tell if parents have 'over-helped' and if they have
waited til the last minute. :)
-Solar System Scrap-Book. They are working on this in class and it is a Quiz grade. It will
be displayed along with the 3-d model.
We've been working diligently on ratios this week, and will continue to work on them next week.
The Accelerated Math goal for the quarter is 20 objectives, which averages to be about 2 a week.
Our bible test will be on Tuesday. We will begin a long unit on the divided kingdom next week. We will give you plenty of notice when the test is coming :)
The memory verse for that test will be:
"Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
