Here's a look at our week:
Reading: We learned how to make predictions while reading a story. We learned to use the clues in the pictures and the words to make a guess about what is going to happen next.
Writing: We started our second unit on Poetry. This week we learned how to see things through the eyes of a poet. We looked at ordinary objects and wrote down what they made us think of.
Math: We started our unit on two-digit subtraction. We practiced borrowing from the tens to be able to subtract.
Bible: We learned about the angel visiting Zechariah to tell him that he was going to have a baby. We also learned about the angel visiting Mary to tell her that she was going to give birth to God's Son, Jesus and that He would save His people from their sins.
Social Studies: We took an "airplane ride" to Argentina! We learned about some interesting places, the food, and the people of Miss Guiles' home country.
