The Week of October 2, 2017

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes’ sake along the wall.

- Robert Frost 

The first week of October is shaping up to be a great one!  This week's lessons will include working with types of governments, layers of Earth's atmosphere, fraction/decimal computation, post-Civil War America, and various novel studies.  Please remember to finish your follow-up work after each of your lessons.  Your required assignments will include your weekly Google Classroom Journal, based upon a current event article.  You will also have a word study quiz Friday.  Please write your assigned words in your workplan placket Monday morning.  As always, structure your time so you can achieve your 30 minute weekly goal of online practice and weekly Greek & Latin root work requirement. 

Don't forget: Monday is the Upper Elementary Open House at 4:30 in our classroom.  Also, if you have not already done so, please sign up for upcoming term 1 parent/teacher conferences HERE.  Wear a smile Thursday:  It's class picture day!  Finally, signed progress reports are due Monday.

Have a nice weekend,
Mr. Trent
