The fifth graders in the Gentleness Fruit Stand have completed their adventures in Geometry Land!
We wrapped up our study of geometry by learning about angles, triangles, and their uses. We LOVED the book, Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland ! The adventures of the little son Radius, as he grows up and becomes a knight were quite thrilling- our best “Sir Cumference” book yet!
We are currently working on finding the mean, median, mode, and range for a given set of data. We devised visual configurations with words to help us understand the meaning and use for each type of computation related to given data sets.
In our Bible studies, we are exploring the concept of “The Church as the Body of Christ”. We have talked about opportunities to Fellowship, Learn, Obey, Worship, and Serve- How the church FLOWS ! We are looking for opportunities to serve, and today we decided to pick up gumballs on the playground. We are excited about another service opportunity next week that involves the kindergarteners!
We are gearing up for standardized testing next week, so in chapel today, we set a CCA Fruit goal “To do our best on the standardized tests”. We will share the ways in which we have “bloomed knowledge” this year by doing our best on the tests. In class this week, we set our own individualized Fruit Goals for “spiritual”, “social”, and “academic” areas of our lives.
Take a look at some of our pictures from this week involving math on the deck with “triangle flip charts”, Bible study with our Kindles, and a few other highlights from our week.
May God bless.
