Happy New Year! We are off to a productive start in the classroom. I've told the class we are just about (today was #85) to the halfway point of the school year. We are picking up the pace in order to get into Middle-School-will-be-here-faster-than-you-know-it training.
Based on our overall progress with research in December and writing in January, our animal reports should be about 75% complete. They are due on Tuesday. We'll spend Monday finishing up our work and having a peer edit.
We are into the Ancient Hebrews in Social Studies and the kids LOVE how they already know so much background in this area due to their Religion lessons and listening to the readings at mass over the years.
Speaking of the mass, we are halfway through our studies for the Parts of the Mass. Up next: Liturgy of the Eucharist.
Decimal subtraction is up next, with multiplication and division coming up quickly behind. We'll soon be working on a decimals project. If you could save/send in any grocery store fliers, we'll be needing those shortly. Please remove advertising for beer/wine.
