Reading: The students focused on making a connection to books as they read independently this week.
Writing: The students continued working on their animal research project and most of the students are on the last step of illustrating their animal.
Math: We are ending our math units with lots of review. We did a day of reviewing clocks as well as vending machine math where we added up 2 things from a vending machine and figured out the money and change.
Bible: We finished up the story of Esther and learned that God used a normal girl to save a whole group of people.
On Thursday, the 4th grade class came to read their homemade books to us. The 1st graders did a great job listening and can now look forward to when they can make their own books in 4th and 5th grade.
This week we also had a special guest helping us in 1st grade. One of the 5th graders, joined us for a few days and helped us out. He helped with reading, spelling, and some math as well as taught the 1st graders about samurai life in Japan.
