The essence of intelligence is skill in extracting meaning from everyday experience. Unknown

Happy Monday! This is going to be a quick one since I seem to be running late...
Some days are just like that.

Assignments for Monday, September 29

English/Language Arts: Complete Day One (or Monday, depending on what it's called on the page) of DOL, Vocabulary, and Spelling. Also, complete page 2a of Verbs (part of the DOL packet). Most people should have completed this at school.

Your child should also have a Sensory Writing: Hearing worksheet. The assignment is to finish #2 & 3, which is to make a list of 10 sounds they LIKE to hear--using sensory detail (example: the sound of water gently lapping against the side of the boat when my dad and I are fishing) and 10 sounds they DON'T like to hear. (example: the cat gagging on a fur ball in the middle of the night)

Social Studies: We're designing Wampum Belt patterns--that tell the history of our family or life. Hopefully everyone (grades 5 & 6) has planned what symbols or patterns they want to include on theirs for tomorrow!

Reading, Grade 6. We're doing book projects for our second independent book for the month of September. A few folks have not done (or completed) a second book... oh-oh! (That's why they should read at least a half hour a night, and use extra class time when available.) We're doing it here, so there's no assignment--that is, unless they're still finishing that book!

I hope everyone has a pleasant evening--Take care.
