Welcome to 4B's Virtual Classroom!

Bits & Pieces 
For Memorization:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Luke 6:31
Habits of Mind:
Striving for Accuracy:
Check it again!
Always do your best.
Set high standards.
Check your work.
Find ways to improve constantly.
Growth Mindset:
It's not "impossible."
It's "I'm going to make it possible!"
modest, humble, meek, unassertive, gentle
"Take up your yoke and learn from me
for I am meek and humble of heart."
Jesus the Sacrifice is the perfect example of humility.
Mom & Pop
"Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old, he will not depart from it."  Proverbs 22:6

We will be working on the virtue of humility this quarter; it is very needed with this class.

Encourage your child to practice skills in Lexia and in IXL.
