Wow! What a busy, but wonderful week! Thank you to everyone who came to our Christmas Program on Wednesday night. We were so excited to share our hard work with you and hope that you enjoyed every minute of it! Here's some pictures from our practices and from the performance:
Reading: In reading this week, we focused on making Text-to-World connections and continued practicing our Text-to-Self connections.
Writing: For writing we planned and wrote the first draft of our procedural writing pieces. Next week we will finish these and make them into a book!
Math: In Math we learned about shapes! We learned that quadrilaterals have four sides and four angles. Today we also learned about other 2D shapes. Through out Unit 5 we will be making a 2D and 3D shape book. This week we focused on the 2D shapes and next week we will move into the 3D shapes.
Bible: For Bible we learned about the different names given to Jesus in the Bible. Each student was given an ornament with a name of Jesus on the front and a verse on the back. They looked up their Bible verse and wrote down what that name of Jesus tells us about Him. Next week we will hang up our ornaments!
Social Studies: This week we started learning about Africa! We took a "trip" to Kenya and learned about the people and animals there.
