Auction:  March 16 - We’re looking forward to a wonderful Auction tonight!  Thank you to our parents who have brought in items and money to help support this fundraiser.  A big thank you to Ellen Baggenstoss and her committee for preparing for an amazing night!

Bible:  Continue working on our memory verse passage:  Ephesians 6:10-20 (ESV).  Our next verse test #9 is scheduled for Tuesday, March 20, 2018, for (5B) and Wednesday, March 21, 2018, for (5A) and will cover the following verses:  

                                      Ephesians 6:17-18 (ESV).

17 “and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”

***  Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank) of verses 10-16 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our mind.  

10 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;”

Music:  We have begun to work on our songs for Grandparents’ Day during class.  The students are making great progress. We are in full swing with recorders.  They should be working on practicing controlled blowing into the recorders, as well as playing the letters B, A, and G. The students know which songs they need to perform for me in order to achieve their first belt in recorder karate!

F&F:  The vocabulary test for Plot will be on Thursday, March 22, and the skills & performance tests for Plot will be on Friday, March 23, 2018.  Remember, if you are planning to be out of school Thursday and Friday of this week, please let me know now so your child can take those tests before they leave for Spring Break.  Thank you!

Spelling:   No spelling until after Spring Break.

Math: We will have a test over multiplication and division of fractions on Thursday, March 22.  This has proved to be much easier than adding and subtracting fractions!!

English: This upcoming week we will begin our next unit. In this unit, students will work with adverbs, prepositions, and prepositional phrases. We will also work on making our writing clearer by incorporating these parts of speech and phrases.

Social Studies:  We will begin our study in chapter 8,“The Roaring Twenties.” We will examine the country’s economic boom at the beginning of the 1920’s, then how the economy weakened toward the end of the 1920’s.
