May all our actions, words, thoughts, and spirit be centered in God, on God, and for God! Let us keep our passions well-disciplined and our spirit pure and faithful. Fidelity to our way of life will help us keep our thoughts centered on God. Then our words will be an inspiration to family, friends, and acquaintances.
-Saint Jane Frances de Chantal

Students will continue their writing assignment, creating a tale of about a Leprechaun who gets stuck in his hat…upside down!
Social Studies 5A & 5B:
The class has begun reading the magazine The Declaration of Independence. This magazine has many review terms, concepts, and people that we have previously read about and are currently viewing on Liberty Kids. The class will be given a group project in class to demonstrate knowledge and keep for personal use when studying for our end of year exam. This project will be graded upon completion.
Along side the magazine work, we will be viewing the Liberty Kids Series. Students will have study questions based on each episode and after every five episodes there will be a test on just the Liberty Kids information. Sometimes videos need to be watched in class with headphones, please check in with your child often to know if their headphones are in working order. The test for Liberty Kids episodes 6-10 is scheduled for Tuesday 3/21.
Students have all been linked to a Google Classroom with me in order to see work done in class when they are absent. If students need to copy notes not completed in class they may find the notes and links to any videos watched in Google Classroom.
