Hi There!

It is hard to believe this is the last week of school!  Wow!!!  Yahoo!!!

You have given me such a gift in allowing me to be with your children each Friday.  I have enjoyed them very much…wittiness, intelligence, and their sweet tender hearts.

Today, I gave them a fun pop quiz. We discussed the Council of Trent.  We reviewed the whole year of what we have study by dividing into two teams (as we have the past few weeks).  Each team answered quesitions to sccore points for their respective teams.  It is in incredible what they remember…dates, people and places.

For this week, please do the assignments for Week 32 in regards to John Knox.  I am looking forward to their presentations…remember…short, easy, fun and what impressed them the most.

Thank you for all you have done this year!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer full of sunshine rays, splashing water and catching fireflies!

Week of April 30th

4/30/17

Please have your child to do the assignments in the binder pertaining to week 31 pertaining to The Council of Trent.

We have been reveiewing the facts from the very beginning of the year until now in class for the past few weeks.  It is amazing to see how much they remember.  Penny and I thought it would be good to do this since there is so much material to review.  There will not be a comprehensive final.  On the last day of shcool, your child may give a report or show something they have made from what they have learned this year.

Have a great week!

Week of April 16th

4/7/17

Please have your child to the assignments for week 29.

We will discuss what the children have learned in class on Friday, but there will not be a quiz.  We also will review what we have previously studied.

Parents, I am thinking of not have a comprehensive exam at the end of school.  I am leaning toward each child picking a topic we have studied and giving a report in class…telling what interested them the most and fun facts about the topic…nothing long.  They may also do a drawing, make something of the times (catapults…the girls were even into catapults :})  Anything to show in class.  This will be done like the last two weeks of class.  We “will” continue to review what we have studied.

I would like your opinion.  If you had rather have a comprehensive exam, I can do that.  I know the last teacher did.   It was around 100 questions.   They take tests each week and know the material.  They even get the true and false from what we previously studied.   Just a thought…..please let me know your thoughts.

I appreciate each of you!  You have wonderful children.  They are so smart!!!  I enjoy them more than any of you will every know.  Thank you for allowing me to be with them each week…truly honored…great children!!!
