The last couple of days, I have been reflecting on the past trimester. The good things, the bad things, and everything in between. This past trimester has been great. We have explored so many new things and learned more about previous subjects too. We have continued to enhance our skills in every subject. This includes math, language, history, spanish, art, geography, geometry, and literature. We have also been going to dance class and Mass at the Church of Saint Paul every other week. We have guest speakers come talk to us about a variety of different subjects. Photography, basketball, vocations, and more to come. Our morning prayer consists of praying the Liturgy of the Hours and saying the eternal rest prayer for all those who have died. Overall, we have learned a lot since the first day of school.
I am looking forward to learning even more in the next trimester. I'm especially excited to start learning algebra. I think that next trimester will be a new and exciting adventure with many challenges to conquer. We are going to be making some Christmas art projects for gifts to give. I am looking forward to working on them over the next couple of weeks before Christmas break. We are also going to be participating in operation Christmas child. We will be having a fundraiser to raise money. Then we will pack a shoe box for a a child in need. I think the next trimester will be awesome.
This blog post we were suppose to write about how our first trimester went. It was a great first trimester. At the beginnig of the year we had prayer right away in the morning. But now we have it at ten forty-five. At the beginning of the year it was really hard to stay concentrated but now it is easier. There seemed to be a lot of work at the beginning of the year but now it seems better. We usually have about two and a half hours to work in the morning. In the mornings we usually have two lessons and sometimes three. Then at ten forty-five we do Christian prayer. We pray the passage stuff, the reading, the intersessions, the canticle and the responsory.
After that we have morning meeting. During morning meeting we do some sort of greeting that someone chooses. Then we say announcements and daily news. After that we say compliments and do stretches which someone leads. Then we eat lunch which is really boring listening to the book. Then comes the best part of the school day, recess. We usually play soccer or basketball. After recess we come in and work and sometimes have special things like Spanish, Art, or speakers. Today were actually having a coffee house and correcting our children's books. Then we have jobs and we clean the classroom and the bathrooms. Then finally at two forty-five we get to go home.
