Penny War

Keep the coins coming! One more week of the penny war! We will count the coins and the winning class will have an ice cream party during review time on our last week of CC! (I will provide substitutions for those who can not have dairy.)

Here are the rules:

Each class will have a jar to place their money in.

1 penny is 1 point.

Roll of pennies 75 points

$1.00 bill is 100 points

Nickels (-5), dimes (-10) and quarters (-25) are negative points.

Your job is to put positive points in your jar and negative points in the other classes jar.

Classical, Christian Education

"...our sons know that they are servant-kings. That doesn't mean they will always act consistently with what they believe. They are new adults, so who knows how they are going to mess things up. They are going to be broken in ways that will hurt, but they also know that service is hard, the responsibilities of being an ambassador for Christ are enormous and His grace is abundant. They are no longer sons but brothers to our King. I look forward to serving with them even though I know my contributions to their weaknesses."

--Leigh Bortins, The Conversation

Foundations to Challenge

In math today, we will teach students to chant the commutative law for addition and multiplication. Don't worry if they don't understand this right now. Later, as they enter the dialectic stage of math in Challenge A and Challenge B, they will begin to apply the commutative law to numbers and then to equations. This memory work ensures that they don't have to memorize the laws at the same time they are being asked to apply them. If you want to do a simple illustration with your students, show them that you can add two red crayons to two blue crayons or two blue crayons to two red. Either way, you have four crayons - the commutative law in action!

"But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in your, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."

Romans 8:9-11 (KJV)

Structure: Compound-Complex

Purpose: All

Pattern: S-Vl-PN and S-Vl-PA

Parts of Speech: Adjectives (Review)

A verbal is a form of a verb that performs the function of an adjective, noun, or adverb. But does not do the work of verbs in the sentence. There are three type of verbals: infinitive, participle, and gerund. This week's verbal is the participle.

A participle is a verb form used as an adjective and most often ends in -ed, -en, or -ing.

The participle acts as an adjective. They are either in the present or the past form of a verb.

Commit your linking verbs to memory! Students often confuse the the PN and PA pattern with the OCN and OCA, both require a transitive verb. The key is the linking verb. Remember that a PN renames or replaces the subject, and the PA describes the subject.
