Highlights from our Week:

  • Math: In 3rd grade, we have been learning about area and perimeter. In 4th grade we have taken perimeter to an entirely different level this week!
  • Religion: During Religion, we have been taking our time with learning about Holy Week. We learned in Monday Morning Prayer that the Passion of Christ which is read on Palm Sunday is divided into three parts (the betrayal/trial of Jesus, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection). We even read through the Gospel of Luke in our student Bibles to understand His Passion. On Holy Thursday I washed one lucky student’s feet to demonstrate how Jesus was not above serving his disciples. We ended the week with watching the eighth graders perform the Stations of the Cross. We understand that God had a plan from the beginning to save us from our sins through the death of His son, Jesus.
  • Writing: We continued working on our informational writing. We went through the process of revising our pieces and are beginning to publish them. During Grammar, we have been learning about adjectives. We have also begun diagramming sentences!
  • Science: We observed our plants! We noticed that the sunflowers are growing and so are the pea plants. We’re still waiting for the green beans to grow.
  • Social Studies: We learned a fun Native American children’s stick game. We made them and brought them home to play with our families. We also learned about Chief Spokan Garry.
  • Reading: We continued with our novel studies.
  • Technology: We used the Chromebooks for our research writing.
