Reading: This week we finished reviewing our comprehension strategies. We focused on using our prior knowledge, summarizing, and making predictions.
Writing: In Writing we learned all about VERBS! We classified verbs into three categories: action, helping, and linking. Then we did lots of activities to practice knowing and using verbs.
We also finished our Procedural Writing Unit. This week we wrote how to BE something. We had a wide range of ideas from How To Be Messy to How To Be A Second Grader.
Math: This week we continued learning about three digit subtraction with regrouping. The students are doing a great job with these hard concepts! Next week we will finish up this chapter and take our test.
Bible: In Bible we learned about Jesus bringing a dead girl back to life, Jesus healing a man who was sick for 38 years, and Jesus feeding more than 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish! Through these miracles we learned that Jesus has power over sickness and death and the ability to make a lot from a little.
