Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts and love for Teacher Appreciation Week! I feel incredibly blessed to work with each one of the students and parents that make up our 2.1 class.  Thank you for making this whole school year, and especially this week, so great! :)

In Reading this week, we continued comparing and contrasting different versions of fairytales. We read two different versions of Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White and looked at the parts of the stories that were the same and different.  For Writing this week, we wrote question poems.  Each student picked a topic and then made a poem using only questions. On Friday we also started planning for our very own Fractured Fairy Tale.  Each student picked an original fairytale and we spent the day reading and taking notes on the events.  Next week we will start writing our own versions of these fairytales.

In Math this week we took our Unit 9 Test on Measurement and moved into Unit 10.  We practiced adding money amounts that included dollars and cents.  We also learned how to name different dollar amounts.  For Bible we finished up our Unit on Parables.  This week we learned about the Parable of the Lost Son and how God welcomes us back into His family when we repent.  We also learned about the Parable of the Good Samaritan and how we are to help those in need even if they are our enemies.  On Thursday we also heard the Story of the Wise and Foolish Builders.  The class was split in half and each half was given a different part of the story to act out.  They had a lot of fun working together and acting out their different parts!
