Friday News for Week of October 26-30

Happy Friday!

We had an amazing day at Sweet Potato Digging! Here are some pictures!

This week:
Reading: We focused on Setting. Every story has a time and a place where the story takes place. This week we read some fun books to figure out the setting of the story. On Thursday, the students picked their own book from their book bag and figured out the setting for themselves. They did awesome!

On Thursday for spelling, we played a game to find all the words with the word family -eck, -ock, and -uck.

Math: On Monday we learned all about reading graphs. We read and figured out 4 different kinds of graphs: Bar Graphs, picture graphs, and pie charts! 

We continued practicing counting dimes, nickels, and pennies, as well as learned to count the total on dominoes. On Thursday we reviewed clocks, money, frames and arrows, and sums of 10 to prepare for our Chapter 3 test on Friday.

Bible: This week we finished the incredible story of Joseph. God used all of his bad situations for good. “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20

Here’s a fun video we watched to finish Joseph.
