Welcome to 5th-6th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of Nov. 28 – Dec. 2
Praying that you enjoyed your extended Thanksgiving weekend! God’s blessings to your families as we head toward the Christmas season and gear up for our Christmas programs!
5-6 ChristLight— Our stories this week are Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand and Jesus Walks on Water. Through these stories we learn the truths that Jesus fulfills all our needs, both physical and spiritual, and that we can trust him completely when the storms of our lives knock us down.
*Memory Treasures: Students are focusing on memorizing the Christmas songs this week.
5-6 Spelling—This week students are working on LESSON 15.
5-6 Social Studies— We are learning about all the countries in Europe, their capitals, and we will familiarize ourselves with the bodies of water and landforms of this continent as well. A project we are starting this week as well is to draw a detailed map of Europe!
7-8 U.S. History— This week we start a new Government/civics unit. We’ll be learning about the importance of our constitution and how our government works.
3-4 Social Studies— We will finish up the pilgrims and the Northeast this week. Then we study rural communities by looking at dairy farms and milk products! We will learn how both cheese and butter are made from milk.
5-6 Music—We will be splitting our time by chanting some school-themed raps and learning our hand chimes song for Christmas Song Fun night.
7-8 Music— We are taking a break from music history now and learning about the Brass family of musical instruments. We will also be starting to look at our Christmas Service program for December.
I am thankful for our partnership in Christ! ✟
