Friday News for Week of February 16-19

Happy Friday! We are moving fast through the school year! It’s almost March, unbelievable!

This Week:

Reading: We focused on Retelling the Story. This is a very hard but necessary skill. To retell a story, you need to know the setting, characters, problem, beginning, middle, end, and the solution. Phew! That’s a lot of things to remember! But, it will help the students with the comprehension of their stories.

This week we finally had everyone back after some sicknesses so we performed our Did You See Chip? Reader's Theater! Enjoy:

Math: This week we focused on counting quarters and telling time. Quarters are the hardest of all the coin money so we will continue to practice counting the coins. We also learned how to tell time to the 5 minutes by looking at the long and short hands.

Bible: We learned how Saul continued to disobey God and as a result, he is not able to be king anymore. Samuel goes and picks a new king from the family of Jesse. Samuel thought it was going to be one of Jesse’s older sons, but the Lord reminded him, “Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” As a result, Jesse’s youngest son, David was chosen who will go on to be a good king for Israel.

Writing: We wrote letters to our parents this week!

Social Studies: We learned all about restaurants this week! What is the favorite restaurant you like to go to with your family?

Next Week:

Spelling Words: soon, good, look, took, food, book, zoo, foot, cool, noon, many, he
Bible Memory: “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not be in want.” Psalm 23:1
