1st Week of 3rd Quarter

It was great to see all the students back after the Christmas Break! We had a good first week back reviewing our procedures and learning some new things too.  In Reading, we reviewed each section of the Daily 5 and practiced them as a whole class.  We also introduced our Daily 5 Notebooks which will help us to keep track of our learning while we are reading.  We reviewed how to Check for Comprehension and how to Use Prior Knowledge to help us understand our reading more.  For Writing, we set goals for the new year and also wrote about our Christmas Break and the many fun activities.  In Math, we have started our Unit on Shapes and Lines.  This week we learned about points, lines, parallel lines, and polygons.  For Bible we started our study of Jesus' Miracles.  We learned about Jesus changing water into wine at a wedding and how he healed the official's son.  With each miracle we have seen how Jesus has great power and can do things that are impossible for a normal person to do.
