Currently Transition Math has tested on basic algebraic expressions and is getting into number sense, divisibility, and exponents. General Math will be applying these rules into simplifying expressions with 2 variables and prepping for FRACTIONS. We will step out of the textbook a bit to be sure fraction concepts are secure before we tackle operations with fractions.
Red Ribbon Week
Thanks to Student Council for a great Red Ribbon Week. At assembly on Monday we learned about peer pressure and making healthy, God pleasing choices. Throughout the week we celebrated our healthy lifestyle with fun dress days and our door decorating contest.
As we begin our Short Story unit, students are learning about plot analysis and characterization. What better way to explore direct and indirect characterization that to shove the desks aside and ACT. Check out these scenes from "Dragon, Dragon."
Have you marked your calendar? Just a reminder that Wednesday, December 2, at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Grades 5 and 6 will lead the first Advent worship services at Zion Church. We have begun preparations for leading worship including practicing readings, auditioning for drama parts, and learning songs.
A reminder also for musicians that auditions will be Tuesday, November 17 for preservice and offertory music. Selections must be sacred music related to the Advent or Christmas seasons of the church year and be memorized. Interested students may also consider performing in duets.
