It's been a great week in 6R! Student now have over a full week under their belts and a sense of how classes and transitions go. We are getting better at routines, travel, and organization with fewer reminders. Students jumped right into Religion class at the beginning - GENESIS - to see our great and loving Creator had a plan for our salvation right from the start. We also welcomed Mrs. Carol Martin, one of the founders of Moms In Prayer, to teach about praying scripturally, using Bible verses as a starting point. Students are writing prayers for the PA announcements. We also ended our week helping kindergarten buddies on an alphabet hunt.
Some other units of study to begin the year:
S.S. - Mapping skills
Lit - Fiction vs. NonFiction
Math - properties, basic operations, word problems
Science - Earth Science
Art - Line, space, and color
English from Mrs. Dersch:
This week, students presented their bio bags as part of our introductory unit on speaking and listening skills. We wrote an original Biography Poem using both concrete and abstract words/terms. We are now beginning our first unit on “The Sentence.” In spelling, we finished our first unit and had our first test over the individual words each student selected. Please look in the Friday folders for a spelling newsletter with tips to help your child succeed with his/her spelling words.
Book orders are due online next Friday. Our class code is GV2FP. If you prefer to send in a check, before the deadline. A newer online feature - you can order for all siblings at once and assign books to be delivered to different classroom orders. Online orders earn you a free book. : ) Don't feel pressured to order, I told the kids the flyers are a great way to see what to look for at their local library, too!
A big thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our Back to School Night. A few notes:
- A packet came home to those who were unable to attend.
- Email is my best contact. I am not one who texts often, and I don't keep my phone on me.
Please don't hesitate to contact me throughout the year as we partner together in the education of your child.
