Week 11 Newsletter

I want to thank each of you for the time we spent discussing your student.  This allows me to see each student a little more wholly.  The time we used to talk about your child will allow me to better teach them.  It is truly a blessing to team with each of you to better your child individually.

If you ever feel it necessary to have another conference, I will make myself available.  Please let me know via email and we can find a time that works for the both of us.

As a reminder, all students should finish reading their realistic fiction book this week and should start responding to the questions, from the main character’s point of view, on the Character Day Information Sheet.  The realistic fiction book should be more than 125 pages.  It should not be a book from a series, nor a graphic novel.  Their Character Day Presentation is on Dec. 8.

Don’t forget to continue studying the prepositions, because the students have an overall test over each of the 5 sets of propositions on December 9.  Here is the list to study from.

This week's bible verse:  All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  - 2 Timothy 3:16-17

What we are studying this week:
Bible: The Bible Is Inspired (Lesson test on 12/6)

Grammar:  Prepositions (throughout, to, toward, under, until, up, with, without) - QUIZ on Friday)

Math: Begin Ch. 3 Multiplying 2-digit numbers

Science: Unit F: The Body’s Delivery Systems - Respiratory and circulatory system
