Reading: This week we learned some more about Read to Someone and practiced it together. The students did a great job of staying quite while reading and Checking for Comprehension with their partner.
Writing: Last week we began writing our first fiction stories and this week we were able to continue working on them. We focused on giving our story a good ending. During our Work on Writing time we also continued to build stamina. We are now able to write for 20 minutes without stopping!
Math: This week we continued our study of addition. We learned about doubles facts and the +9 shortcut. We used these two strategies to help us solve other addition problems as well.
Bible: Our focus in Bible this week was that God wants our obedience more than anything else we could give Him. We learned about the people of Israel during the time of the Judges and how they were not obeying God. However, when they repented and started obeying God He saved them. We also learned about King Saul and how he disobeyed God's commandment.
Science: We had our first science class this week! This year we will be going to Mr. Fox's room to learn Science. For the next three weeks we will be learning about electricity!
Field Trip: We had a GREAT time on our Field Trip on Thursday! We enjoyed getting to play at the park and finding many fun sea creatures on the beach. Thank you to all the parents who were able to join and enjoy the day with us! Here are some pictures from our adventures:
