We have been using what we learn in language in our science notebooks. Several class members have completed their embroidered samplers and they are on display on a bulletin board. They are very pretty. "How the Camel Got His Hump" was read orally in class this week. Everyone got a chance to read and say "humph!" the way he felt it should be said. It was fun and we had lots of laughs. We are giving current events now as part of our reading lessons. People are finding that it is interesting to read the newspapers and keep up with the news.

Chris and James made a bulletin Sixth Grade — Mrs. Butterfleld In social studies we are studying about medieval times. We are using a word list as we study this chapter. When we read about fi man or a place in history we write down some special things we want to remember about them. We have read about Peter the Hermit and the Crusades to the Holy Land, the Vikings from Norway, Sweden and Denmark, William the Conqueror, Alfred, the King of Wcssex, and Charles the Hammar. We are finding the lowest common denominator in addition of fractions ii.il reducing our answers to the lowest terms. This work seems (<> lie very easy fur most of us. Our OMI IxKik reviews have all 'v'i n given for language class. Some got a bit nervous when they were spenking before the class, but we enjoyed hearing about the books they had read. We were surprised that no two people chose the same Iwok to report about. For ait class this week we brought a picture suitable for framing. We mixed flour and salt together, and added some tempra powder for color. We applied this mixture around the picture for a frame. The reason for using a color was to see how well we could bring out one certain color used in the picture. We are very proud of our pictures. Diane Pattison furnished the salt for this project. Those who attended the last two basketball games here got to see the future stars of Fayette high girls' and boys' basketball. We hope you enjoyed watching us as we enjoyed playing.
