Christmas is upon us and everyone is ready for the holiday season. Students have been working really hard on comprehending new math concepts and applying what they learned in class to real-world situations.
Let’s take a closer look…
6th Grade Math:
Students just finished working with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals. In our next chapter, students will compute fractions by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Students will also learn how to apply conversions to real-world examples.
6th Grade Religion:
“Boxes of Joy” went extremely well. Students were able to collect over hundreds of items and create 36 boxes, which were sent to children around the world. Students also created numerous boxes and bags for St. Lukes Mission and Harvest House. Each student enjoyed putting the boxes together to provide children and families with things they don’t have.
In class, students are finishing up Chapter 4, God’s Promises to Help People, and will begin their Saint’s Project. Each student will be able to choose a Saint to research and then present to the class. At the end, each student will have a book composed of all the Saints presented in their class.
7th Grade Math:
Student’s just completed Chapter 3, Operations with Integers, and will begin Chapter 4, Rational Numbers. Within this chapter, students will gain a better understanding of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions and applying conversions to real-world examples.
8th Grade Math:
Student’s just finished working with solving equations with variables on one or both sides. In the next chapter, Equations in Two Variables, students will apply their knowledge of equations to find slope, graph linear equations, and solve systems of equations. Students will be able to relate linear equations to real-world problems and predict what could happen next in the situation.
