Reading: This week we continued making connections while reading. We looked for Text-to-Self Connections and also Text-to-World Connections.
Phonics: This week we focused on the long u sound. We also learned about homophones, which are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meaning.
Writing: We continued working on our fiction stories and published our second story!
Math: This week we worked hard on our subtraction with borrowing. We learned three rhymes to help us know what to do when we see a subtraction problem.
More on top? No need to stop!
More on the floor? Go next door and get 10 more!
Number's the same? Zero's the game!
Bible: This week we learned about how Jesus picked His disciples. He wanted them to start being "fishers of people" which means that He wanted them to find people who didn't know about God and tell them about what Jesus did for them. We also learned about how God doesn't want us to worry about things in our life, but trust that He will take care of us.
