Fifth Grade Homeroom has begun their religion study titled, Liturgy and Life. This month they will be learning about Confession and Absolution, the Office of the Keys, liturgical worship, Lutheran hymnody, and how to thank and praise God wherever we are. They are memorizing the 6th Petition of the Lord’s Prayer this month.
In grades 5-8 Language Arts, the students have completed their grammar unit on adjectives and modifiers. In the next few weeks they will extend their knowledge concerning the mechanics of the English language.
In Writing, students have begun to explore current events to identify an author’s purpose for writing with a focus on opinion and persuasion.
In Reading, students are midway through their novels and will be evaluating the relationship between the story events and the climax. At this stage, they are recognizing how the author uses the events in the story to build up the character’s conflict and the breaking point from which they will need to resolve. Students will focus some of their vocabulary instruction to explore how authors use character traits to define a subject and how that relates to themselves. Further recognizing the impact on others' perception and response. Students continue to progress through Academic Vocabulary and their individualized word study units.
The Ocean Blue
By: Jackson Metcalf
Needles and pins Needles and pins
Sew me a sail to catch me the wind
Sew me a sail Strong as a gale
Carpenter bring out your hammers and nails
Hammers and nails Hammers and nails
Build me a boat to go chasing the whales
Chasing the whales Sailing the blue
Find me a captain and sign me a crew
Captain and crew Captain and crew
Take me oh take me somewhere new
Somewhere new somewhere new
Boy do I love the ocean blue
Ocean blue Ocean blue
Maybe we’ll find something new
Something new something new
Maybe we’ll find an old sunken shoe
We were told We were told
I think I remember what we were told
To get home and get some rest
And let our captain and crew do the rest
Now we're home now were home
What's that ringing at the phone
It's our captain jack He wants us back
He says to get here and do not slack
Were off at last Whos that climbing up the mast
We’ll sail the ship again.
The World's Kitchen
by; Jayleigh Kope
Welcome to the kitchen
What do you think?
A bunch of happy children
who can't wait
There are burger,
the fries, and the milkshakes,
How can I help you today?
There are potatoes,
and a great big steak,
and the rice sounds great!

Distracting, piercing, disheartening, unnerving
Eerie, fright, pindrop
