Classical Conversations Week 22
To Know GOD and Make HIM Known
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."

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.
