Happy day before Bazaar and day before the last day of February!
Reading: We continued to work on our Student-Led Conference folder. We also worked on Read to Self and Word Work. Since our spelling words were blends with the letter “R” we also thought of a lot of words that start with that blend.
Bible: We finished the story of Solomon. After Solomon asks for wisdom, God tells Solomon to build His temple in Jerusalem. He used gold and fine material to build a place of worship for the people of Israel. Far away in another country, a queen hears about Solomon’s wisdom and wealth and goes to visit him to see it with her own eyes. Everything she sees is true and she praises Solomon’s God for all he has. In Solomon’s later years, he begins to fall away from God. He married foreign wives that didn’t follow God and in the end, God keeps his promise to David, but declares that he will divide Israel and make 2 kingdoms. Even though Solomon did not finish his life very well, he still was very wise and wrote large parts of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, as well as some Psalms in the Bible. So this week we made a scroll with our Bible verse, Proverbs 3:5-6 on it!
Math: We have finished Unit 6 and we are trekking through the math units! This week we learned how to tell time with digital time and to the 5 minute intervals. We also continued practicing with counting coins, as well as using centimeters and reading graphs.
TOMORROW is BAZAAR!!! Come on out from 10-3pm to go shopping in the gym or eat some delicious foods!

Bible: Psalms 8:1 “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth.”
