Happy Field Day!!
What great weather we had today for field day!! The students got wet, ran hard, play a lot, and had fun! Thanks to the parents who came out and cheered for us! Here’s some pics:
Reading: We focused on “Prior Knowledge” what do we know before we start reading? We started reading some Nonfiction texts and talked together what we already know about the topics. Then we read the books! This will help us as we prepare to pick an animal and do some research on it!
Math: We finished chapter 8 about measurement and time. The students did great learning how to read a clock to the hour and the half hour. The next unit is on 2D shapes!
Bible: We finished the life of Solomon and learned that even though he was so wise, he became very confident and stopped trusting in God. As a result he did lots of things God was not happy with. God finally said that he would take the kingdom away from Solomon. BUT God made a promise to David that his family will be king forever, so God said that he would allow only a small part of Israel to have Solomon’s family rule. This week we also learned that there are different kinds of Psalms and Proverbs. We sang out hearts out this week with a song that goes with our Bible verse, Psalm 8:1.
Science: We learned that everything is made up of matter. Matter comes in three states: solid, liquid, and gas. Solid are things like a table, a water-bottle, and our bones. Liquid are things like water, juice, and syrup. Gas are things like air, steam, and smoke.
On Monday, we debriefed about Kid City and also mailed our own postcard to our houses! Students came to me today to say they received it! That was fast!
Spelling Words: hops, hopping, stops, stopping, hopes, hoping, makes, making, smiles, smiling
Bible Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 2:2 “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no rock like our God.”
