Happy Friday! 1/20
Check out the photos I've attached for the (more work than I expected) Great American Mail Race that we've been working on and are finally ready to mail out! Sadie, a girl who was in this class from K-3rd grade, reached out to me via her teacher in Oregon and invited us to participate. We have worked to research a St. Joseph School in each of the 50 states and send each of them a student written letter, an informational sheet about PA, a directions letter from me should they also choose to continue the "race", and a blank survey form that we hope they complete and return to us. If all goes well, we should receive completed surveys from all 48 (we've got PA & Oregon taken care of) states. The class is very excited about this. Everyone also wrote a letter for Sadie personally. It was a lot of work, but a fun project and we'll see what comes of it by the end of the school year. Thanks to Sadie for this invitation!!! :)
We are also hard at work on cell projects, upcoming in-house book reports, and planning a math decimals project. We are starting the Communion Rites in Religion and are still on track for our big Religion POM test on 2/3. We are in our Verbs unit in English and are enjoying the overlap of Religion into SS class as we learn about the Ancient Hebrews. As I previously stated, Middle School prep is in full force now. So far, so good. We've been quite productive.
In test packets today, students who opted for the extra credit assignment last weekend for Religion have their work returned. Everyone was encouraged to take one and of course, return it. I do NOT advertise these opportunities to parents, but feel free to remind them as I say in class - any opportunity to earn extra points should be taken advantage of!
94 days of school completed! More than halfway! Can we start counting to summer yet? :)
