What's Happening? September 16-20

                   Reading   
Christian and Hopeful continue on their journey to the Celestial City.    This journey is reminding Christian (and us) of what the Bible teaches..."where we've come from, where we're going, and to whom we belong."   We will begin at Chapter 34 on Tuesday.  

Science
Test over our experience as Archaeologists, our study of Caves, and the steps to a Scientific Method will be on Wednesday, Sept. 18. 

Writing
Students will compare and contrast different animals, people, and more this week as we dive deeper into our compare and contrast writing unit! They will be putting together an informal outline this week. 

Grammar
Verbs will be our next unit in grammar. Helping verbs, action verbs, verb phrases, and more. Our Helping Verb Song written test will be on Thursday. 

Spelling
I promise there will be a "normal" week of spelling coming soon. It just won't be this week due to MAPS testing. Unit 4 will take place this week. Students will focus on prefixes in words. CLOZE and Proof tests will take place on Thursday.

Library and Lab Time
Every week students will get the opportunity to spend time in the library and in the computer lab to receive a brand new technology curriculum to help prepare them for 7th grade on Fridays.  

Our Mission:
  1. Cultivating responsible Christian Adults
  2. Valuing academic excellence
  3. Connecting Biblical truth with everyday living
  4. Shaping Christ like character

Math 
 Chapter two focuses on the relationship between not only decimals and fractions, but also multiplication and division. Students will explore how to multiply, order, simplify, and divide fractions and mixed numbers.  

The problem of the week is a weekly multiple step problem that students are given on Monday and must be turned in by Friday. 
We encourage most of our 6th grade students to continue to practice their basic math facts.

Social Studies
Students should be working on their oral report on a topic on ancient Egypt. The reports will be presented the first week of October.
         Bible
A new unit is beginning on "The Setting of God's Story." 
Memory Verse:  II Timothy 3:16-17 due 10/3

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
