Friday News for Week of October 5-7

Happy Friday! Wow that was a short week because of the typhoon!

This week:
Reading: We are doing an author study on Mo Willems! Mo Willems is a fantastic author and illustrator and writes some of the funniest books including:

We learned that Mo Willems writes stories for 2 reasons: To entertain the readers, and to encourage people to write their own stories. This week we read the Pigeon books, wrote our own Pigeon stories, learned how to draw the Pigeon, and we started acting out a movie called, “Don’t let the pigeon be the teacher.” So much fun!

Math: We started SUBTRACTION!!! I’m excited for the students to become subtraction masters!

Bible: We started learning about Isaac and Rebecca’s children: Jacob and Esau.
