Friday News for the Week of Jan 30-Feb3

Happy Friday! This week was pretty windy and cloudy but Friday burst forth into sunshine and warmth! Because it was so sunny today, our Fun Friday activity of “chalk” was perfect!!! Here’s some pictures:

This Week:
Reading: We focused on “Making Connections” throughout the week we made connections to our own lives, others books, and the world. We read some books that were really easy to make a connection with. Other books, were not as easy and we had to think hard to try to make a connection. By Friday we read a book together and everyone made a connection to the book! Great job everyone!

In Spelling we were learning long E sounds and we played a game on Thursday to practice our spelling words.

Math: We are getting through place value more and more. This week we got to learn the fun, “Greater than” “less than” and “equal to.” The students had fun learning how the < and > are like an alligator’s mouth who only likes to eat the bigger numbers.

Bible: This week we learned the crazy story about the judge Samson. He had some rules he had to live by, but he ended up breaking the rules. Samson was exceptionally strong! He did not always obey God, and in the end, he got caught. But God used him throughout his life and by the end of his life, God gave him strength one last time to defeat the enemies.

Next Week:
Bible Memory Verse: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6:5

Spelling Words: (Review Week) boys boxes tent late rain may came boat hope told coat like time find kind seed meet meat weak week
