Howdy!

Week 5 is in the books!

Secondary students are invited back to the gym tonight for a party! What kind of party? I'm not quite sure how to word it but there will be lots of fun, food, music, etc. It's my last few moments as the youth leader at New Life Assembly and it's been a blast so we'll go out with a boom and have some fun.

We'll have a nacho bar (nachos and all the toppings), a breakfast bar (bacon, pancakes, bacon, waffles, bacon, etc), and tea and coffee.
There will be a lip sync battle (with prizes), a Dr. Seuss rap battle (with prizes), and just some fun things.


Pre-Algebra:
Well done this week y'all! We'll be going through a lot more of the measurements in this chapter this upcoming week. No homework this week. We'll be doing another quiz this next week and preparing for a test the following week as well.

WV History:Today we had our 5 county quiz of the first five B counties. The students had to list them, their county seats and locate them on the map. Several students took the challenge to beat me in listing them and Glen and Emma beat me. I now need to come up with a reward/prize. I tried but went blank.
The next five counties for Thursday the 27th are:
Cabell
Calhoun
Clay
Dodridge
Fayette

Algebra 1
Good job this week students!
This weekend's homework is the blue boxes from Practice 2.1 on pg. 49-50.
This upcoming week we will be doing a quiz on section 1.8-1.10.We will also continue in chapter 2 with the equations.

Bible 7/8
I haven't had a chance to grade your written memory verses but for those who recited it, I am very proud of you! I think most of you did very well!
The next memory verse will be due on Monday, October 1st. Normally we quiz on Friday's but with Grandparents Day on the 28th, we have pushed the quiz date back.
Micah 6:8 (Write or Recite - NOT fill in the blank)

Bible 9-12
For those who recited the memory verse.... great job! Proud of you! I haven't graded the written ones yet. Next memory verse is Micah 6:8. It will be a another Write or Recite (NOT fill in the blank.) It will be due Monday, October 1st. Normally it is Friday, but with Grandparents Day, we will push it back a little. You're welcome. 😀


I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! And hopefully see you at the party tonight if you can come.

Hey all!

We've officially had 4 weeks of school! How incredible is that?! I don't know about you but it has gone by in a blur. It's been wild and fun though! When people first started asking me how I liked teaching after the first week or two, I would say, "I think I love it." Now I feel like I can say, "I love it." But you students are definitely what makes it fun and worthwhile. So thank you!


Pre-Algebra:
This coming week we'll be reviewing the percentages of profits. I know it's been your favorite lessons to do. 😂 I do believe we will have the girls (Madison, Angel, and Bryson) to teach/help direct the class on Monday. Hopefully we will all be on the same page by Tuesday so we can move into the next chapter that deals with measurement. There will be probably be a quiz or test during the week along with the occasional speed test. No homework for the weekend. Enjoy!


WV History:
We have read through chapter 3 this week and will review it on Monday. We will be working through chapter 4 next week, Sept. 17-21.
Homework for the week: We have started working our way through memorizing all 55 counties, their locations on the map and their county seats. The first 5 that you need to have memorized are:

>Barbour
>Berkeley
>Boone
>Braxton
>Brooke

When we quiz on these on Thursday the 20th, I expect proper spelling. I may also challenge any willing students to a race as I will be learning these as well.


Algebra 1:
No homework this weekend. Enjoy! 
But come Monday, we will jump back into writing out the formulas for various figures. You all did well discussing things in class today! Hopefully once we have grasped that, we can move onto the final lesson of chapter 1 and then move into chapter 2. 


Bible 7/8:
Memory verse quiz is due Friday, September 21st. It is 1 Timothy 4:12
*IMPORTANT* This one will NOT be a fill in the blank. You will need to either recite it out loud to me or write it out. It may be any Bible version but you have to specify on the paper which version you have used. If you are not sure which Bible version you have, check with me and I will make sure we are on the same page for when I grade it.


Bible 9-12:
Memory Verse quiz is due September 21st. 1 Timothy 4:12
*IMPORTANT* This one will NOT be a fill in the blank. You will need to either recite it out loud to me or write it out. It may be any Bible version but you have to specify on the paper which version you have used. If you are not sure which Bible version you have, check with me and I will make sure we are on the same page for when I grade it.

***Parents, I have sent notes home with all the Bible students in 9th-12th. We would like to show some movies occasionally as part of class time. Two of them are PG-13, so if you have any issues with your student watching it, please send back the form stating that they are not to participate in that class time. The three upcoming movies that we will watch over the upcoming months are: 

"Priceless" PG-13 (this movie is based on the reality of human trafficking and it is those mature themes that caused it's rating to be what it is)
"Unconditional" PG-13 (this movie is based on a true story but involves thematic elements that caused the rating)
"The Case For Christ" PG


Have an awesome, rest filled weekend!

Finally...

Hello students and parents!

Here's the long awaited blog. I will give assignments in class but this will just be the reminder tool in case you forget what's been assigned, etc. As of right now, I have nothing specific to post for individual classes. There are several classes that I teach so I will list each one and give specifics about what is due or coming up, if anything.

This is going to be a great year and it has already started off in an incredible way. I'm looking forward to all that's ahead!
