The schedule for Acolyting is listed below. Please follow this link http://www.bcponline.org/ to the online Book of Common Prayer. The psalms can be found by clicking on “The Psalter” on the left hand side of the page. Please be sure to help Psalm readers practice beforehand.
Our acolytes this week are Ty, Gus and Julia.
You will find the full Acolyte schedule attached to Weekly Update email.
This week the Dynamic Broncos will finish their second piece of Opinion Writing. Today we discussed how each student would be their own "job captain", responsible for making a work plan and meeting our deadline of having our drafts ready to be revised by Thursday. Your child will be bringing their pieces home tomorrow and Wednesday night to work on for homework. They may need your help doing some basic research, but other than this, they are in charge!
This week we will focus on grammar and reviewing any tricky spelling words from prior word sorts. We will pick up with our next Spelling cycle next Monday.
For tonight's homework and Thursday night's homework, students will spend at least 20 minutes practicing their multiplication facts. We learned/reviewed several games in class today to help practice these facts. Your child should have a packet in their homework folders with directions for how to access the online games and how to play the offline games.
I am attaching links to the online games that we practiced in class, as well as a link to some Schoolhouse Rock multiplication videos that we have been watching in class.
