Reading: This week we learned about Facts and Opinions. We talked about how a fact is something that we can prove to be true and an opinion is how we think or feel. Through out the week we practiced classifying statements through a game and through a sort.
Writing: To follow along with our Reading lesson, in Writing we wrote an opinion piece. As a class we brainstormed the best things to do at recess and then students got together with a group to think of good reasons why their activity was the best. Then on Thursday, the students wrote their opinion about the best ice cream flavor.
Math: Or focus this week was on making change and place value. We learned how to find the change when buying one item and when buying multiple items. We learned to first add together the items that we are buying and then subtract that number from what we payed to find the change. We also learned about place value to the thousands place using our place value books.
Bible: This week we learned about Jesus appearing to His disciples after He came back to life. We learned about Thomas who doubted that Jesus had come back to life and how it is important that we believe in Jesus even though we can't physically see Him. We also learned about how Jesus forgave Peter for denying Him three times. Through this story we learned that we love God when we love His people. The students each thought of a way that they could love God by loving others and either wrote it or drew it on a card.
Social Studies: In Social Studies we travelled to Australia! The students were split into groups to learn about either the geography, people, food, or nature of Australia. Next week they will get into different groups and teach each other what they learned.
