It’s crazy to think how there is only one more full week of school left! I’m so sad think that our fun times in first grade are coming to an end.
We had another great week in 1st grade!
Writing: The students have FINISHED their Animal Research Papers! Today they shared them with each other by reading and learning about each other’s animals. We all ended our papers by saying, “Isn’t God amazing for creating the…” I even learned a lot from the student’s research!
Reading: This week the students did Read to Self and Read to Someone as well as work on Word Work. I met with students to finish reading the 500 Fry Words with them as well as listen to them read the books they picked for the week.
Bible: We are continuing through the Old Testament and now we are learning about the Israelites returning to Israel after 70 years. King Cyrus told some of the Israelites to go back and rebuild the temple. They started with the foundation and when they finished it they had a party. We also learned about Ezra who came back to Israel. He noticed that the Israelites were starting to disobey God again, so he fasted and went with out food for a few days to pray to God. The Israelites listened and said they were sorry for the wrong things and continued to follow after God. It was neat to see the difference between the Israelites before the Exile and the Israelites afterwards. Today we also learned about Nehemiah watching over the rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem.
Math: We are reviewing some of the biggest concepts we learned in Math this whole year. We reviewed all about temperature, clocks, and shapes. We are learning by playing some games as well as working hard to finish our Math Journals.
This week we also had some “Guest Readers” come to our room! The 4th and 5th graders have been busy writing and illustrating their own books. The 4th graders came to read them to us yesterday:
Spelling Words: hopping, hoping, making, smiling, makes, liked, worked, stepped, hoped, hopped, ruled, rainbow, airplane, homework, I’m, can’t, we’re, he’s, don’t, we’ll
