Reading: This week we finished our unit on comparing and contrasting stories. We read two versions of Cinderella and compared and contrasted them together. Then we read two versions of Hansel and Gretel and the students compared and contrasted on their own.
Writing In Writing we started writing comic strips with a partner. The students had to choose their characters, problem, several ways that their characters would try to solve the problem, and the solution. We started our drawings on Friday and will continue them next week.
Math: This week we focused on division. We practiced solving division number stories and saw the relationship between multiplication and division. We also took our Unit 11 Test on Friday.
Bible: In Bible we started learning about the Fruit of the Spirit. This week we learned about love, joy, peace, and patience. We talked about what each of these means and how we should show them in our life. Throughout the week the students also looked for those in our class who were showing the Fruit of the Spirit and recognized them by writing their name on a paper along with what they did to show the Fruit of the Spirit.
