5th - 8th Grade - April 2022

Fifth Grade Homeroom students are studying The Commandments: the Second Table of the Law in Religion. They will come to understand that these laws are designed to help protect and guide us in our relationships with others while emphasizing that the death and resurrections of Jesus Christ are what justifies us, while the Holy Spirit works to sanctify us. Students are memorizing the 3rd Article as well.

In grades 5-8 Language Arts, the students are finishing up their grammar unit on pronouns and prepositional phrases.

In Writing, students are beginning their research projects. 6-8th grade students will complete research in conjunction with the Social Studies topics on World War 1 and various United States Presidents.

In Reading, students are learning how to evaluate non-fiction material and locate and navigate the research section of a library. Students are finishing up their study of academic vocabulary. Word study encompasses a variety of levels from within word spelling patterns to derivational relationships found when breaking down the word parts of multisyllabic words.

We could tell you sentence after sentence about life in 6-8th grade, or we could write a big long list of our activities such as: Surrealistic art, grammar, micro-bit programming, grammar, WW1, grammar, Newton’s laws of motion, grammar, precents, grammar, polynomials, grammar, linear equation graph… blah blah blah… Instead, try your hand at a 6-8th grade content test.
