Week 22: February 8-12

Welcome to week 22. Last week the kindergarten through second grades celebrated 100 days of class with style! What dawned on me, however, is that means we have less than 80 days left together and then our kids will be middle schoolers! It’s exciting and sad at the same time!!

We are starting to practice for our speech meet. There are four categories in fifth grade. They are poetry, bible passage, bible narrative and patriotic selections. The students are allowed to choose from the selections I provide, or they can choose on on their own to have approved at school. If they choose the later option, it must be a selection that is of equal length and difficulty as the other selections. We will begin practicing this week in place of the Bible Verse.
