Here's a snapshot of what happened in 2.1 this week:

Reading: We continued to build our stamina during Read to Self time.  On Thursday and Friday we were able to reach our goal of reading for 20 minutes!! In our Read Aloud times we focused on Accuracy and being able to read the words.  We learned how to stretch out a word to help us sound it out.  We also learned how to chunk letters together to sound out words.

Writing: This week we began writing a fiction story.  First we planned our character and setting.  Then we planned our problem and solution.  Today we practiced writing a story as a class and then began our individual stories.  We will continue these next week.

Math: We finished Unit 1 by playing some review games to prepare for our test on Thursday.  We were able to take our test and all the students did a good job! Then today we started Unit 2 on addition by writing addition number stories together.

Bible: This week in Bible we learned about how God helps His people.  We do not need to be afraid because He is always with us and will help us.  Our first story was about Jacob and Esau and how even though they didn't get along, they were able to forgive one another.  We also learned about Joseph.  We saw that even though he didn't understand why bad things were happening to him, he believed and trusted God and God helped him.  We finished the week by learning how God saved His people Israel from Egypt through the 10 plagues.

Social Studies: In Social Studies we finished our maps.  Here are the finished products:
