Reading: In Reading we continued learning about how to compare and contrast stories. This week we read two different versions of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and two different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk.
Writing: This week in Writing we wrote a book report on one of our favorite books that we read this year. We identified the characters, setting, beginning, middle, and end of the story. Then we wrote why someone else should read this book. Here are some pictures of our finished products:
Math: This week in Math was all about multiplication! We learned four different ways to multiply: equal groups, arrays, skip counting, and repeated addition. On Friday, each student received a multiplication problem and had to show how to solve it using the four different ways. Then they picked which way they thought was the best.
Bible: In Bible we learned about Phillip, Paul, and Peter. We learned the importance of obeying God when He tells us to do something even if we don't understand why He is asking us to do it. We also learned that God's love and salvation is for everyone in the whole world, no matter their language, country, or what they look like.
