In Phonics we worked on Long A words and on making words. In Reading, we learned to look for smaller words that we already know to help us know how to read big words. We were also very excited to start Word Work in our Daily 5 time. The students had lots of fun playing different word games with our Word Wall and Spelling words. In Bible, we learned about the birth of Jesus and how He is the only one that is able to save us from our sins. In Writing, we worked on personal narratives. I am very excited to read what the students have written about their life! For our Math time, we continued to work on Subtraction and Addition and learned some shortcuts to help us do harder problems. For Social Studies, we continued our study of South America. We even had a visitor from Colombia come in to share with us! We have also learned many new Spanish words this week which has been a fun activity for us!
