The fifth- graders in the Gentleness Fruit Stand had so much fun making a mess with plaster today!Without giving away too much information regarding our “erupting surprise” for next Thursday’s literacy event, I will suffice it to say…. we are in the process of a major construction project! Take a look at our pictures and try to guess what we are constructing. Come to our Literacy Event on March 26th at 12:00 noon to witness our “project in action”. We completed our novel, The Twenty- One Balloons, by William Pene du Bois, and will be presenting a showcase of things we learned from the novel, as well as things we learned in Bible, math, science, history, and music. Share an international lunch with us also!
During out Bible times this week, we have been continuing to discuss Salvation through grace, and through Christ alone. We have also been looking at scriptures pertaining to greed, wealth, covetousness, and the love of money. These saints continue to amaze me with their knowledge and application of scripture to our daily lives.
In math, we continued working on geometry skills. Diameters, Radii, Chords, Circumferences, and Areas of Circles are proving to be quite taxing on our brains, but we are plugging away at these skills, and hope to present a little “circular math” at our literacy event.
In music class, it does my heart good to hear the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders sing! My 3rd and 4th graders really praised the Lord today with their rendition of “Low, in the Grave He Lay”. The boys especially love belting out the bass notes on the chorus. We discussed the resurrection of Jesus and how this song relates to the resurrection and our celebration of Easter.
Finally, take a look at some pictures from P.E. class today. The students finished up crab soccer and had a day of basket relays today. Their running skills and teamwork skills are really improving. Mrs. Outlaw never ceases to amaze me with the wonderful ideas she comes up with for P.E. class.
Until next week…. Saints…. Have a blessed weekend and wonderful week!
