Virent Ova! Viret Perna!!
Ask your student what our title means and they should be able to tell you that they listened to Doctor Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham in Latin today. We specifically found roots that we have been studying in class throughout the text, so it was fun for the scholars to hear the Latin conversationally.
We have a full week ahead of us next week, but tomorrow has a full day of its own. Book Report projects are due tomorrow morning. We will begin around 8:30. If you are coming in to watch your scholar please be here by then, and we will have the scholars with parents go first so you don't have to wait through a bunch of students. Each scholar will be performing a 3 minute presentation about their project and their book. It does not have to be memorized, but can be if they are more comfortable with that.
Tomorrow is the first meeting of Speech and Debate Club. We will be diving into LD and then talking about the tournament that we will be observing next week at Highland High School. If your scholar will be joining us then please send back the permission slip that will go home tomorrow. We have two drivers, but may need more. I will communicate that to you all next week.
Today we worked on Act 4 questions for Caesar and will dive into Act 5 tomorrow or Monday. There is a history test on Judaism and Christianity on Monday and will most likely be a math test on Wednesday. Thursday is the Julius Caesar test, and Friday vocabulary and spelling as well as their first essay. We have been working on these essays during class, so the most they should have to do is their final writing on Thursday evening.
