Reading/AR Goals/Reading Log

Please encourage your child to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure that they take an AR test. Each child will receive a milkshake of their choice after every 70 points made in AR tests.

Math

Math assignments for this week are lessons 38, 39, and 40, for both grades. Assignments are randomly selected for grading. Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn the redo in with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade child forgot his/her math book, there is a PDF version in the Classroom Documents. Your child can find the day's lesson and do the work.

Unfortunately, the online link to the 6th-grade math textbook is no longer working. I no longer find the math book online when doing a Google search.

Science

We are studying rocks and minerals in science this week. The students are working on determining what rocks and what minerals we have in this area.

Social Studies

We will continue our studies on  The American Revolution. Once again the students will be looking up the definitions of several words and writing them in their Social Studies notebook. We will be having a test over that past few chapters on Friday.

Religion

We are in the textbook now and learning about  The Chosen People this week.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week this week. Please remember to keep our class and our school in your prayers.

Blessings,

Mrs. Charles
