For Spelling this week we continued our study of r-controlled vowels. Next week we will have a review lesson on the past few lessons and concepts including plural nouns and verbs and r-controlled vowels. In Reading we continued comparing and contrasting stories. This week we read two different versions of The Little Mermaid and two different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. We also used these stories to help us plan our Fractured Fairy Tales for Writing. We finished our research of the original fairy tales this week and moved into the planning stage for our very own fractured fairy tale. Towards the end of the week, we started writing our stories. The students have done a wonderful job so far and I am excited to read their final stories!
In Math class we practiced using calculators to help us solve problems. We also learned how to estimate the cost of an item to see if we have enough money to buy it. On Friday we also practiced making change when buying items. For Bible we talked about doubting Thomas and the importance of believing in Jesus even though we can't see Him. We also learned how Jesus forgave Peter for denying Him and gave Him an important job to do in the Church. We ended the week by studying the ascension of Jesus back into Heaven. Next week we will begin studying what the disciples did after Jesus went back to Heaven.
