Parents and Students,
I hope everyone had a great weekend and a lovely Thanksgiving.
The next three weeks will be busy. Whenever I get five day weeks, a few in a row, I'm motivated to include as much curriculum as I can within that time period. Needless to say, we will be working hard for a while.
Math - the students are finishing up their study of fractions (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing) this week and will test chapter 5 and lessons 6-8 and 6-10 on Friday.
Reading - we are reading at a rapid pace, and are testing weekly. This week is a fable called the "Ch'i-lin Purse". We read it on Friday and will work with greek and latin root words as well as comparing and contrasting this week.
Science - I'm switiching with Mr. Bague this week. Mr. Bague's class, will be working on Chapter 8, Metals and Salts. It will take one week to instruct, and another week to study for the test which is scheduled for December 6.
In the Presence of Others Sing not to yourself with a humming Noise, nor Drum with your Fingers or Feet.
