Reading: This week we learned how to check our comprehension while we are reading. We learned to stop and ask ourselves who the characters are and what has happened so far in the story. We also continued to build our independent reading stamina.
Writing: We started writing true stories about our lives. This week we focused on building our writing stamina by writing for longer periods of time. On Friday we shared some of our stories with a partner!
Math: This week we focused on adding three or four numbers together and solving word problems.
Bible: We learned that God always keeps His promises. When He says that He will do something, He follows through. We looked at the story of Noah and how God promised never to flood the whole earth again. We also learned about Abraham and that God promised him a son even though Abraham was very old. God kept His promise and gave Abraham a son when he was 100 years old.
